Very Interesting Reading:
Thanks to El Blog Diablógico I learned that , BoingBoing co-editor has been trekking through Guatemala and posting her impressions on her online travel log. Not often are we so lucky to have a professional writer, journalist and blogger publish a detail-rich travelog about Guatemala and her coverage of recent events, including an earthquake. After reading a dozen or so entries on her journal, I just come to realize that my attempts at documenting life in Antigua Guatemala are at best childish and plain basic. If you really interested in getting a feeling for what is like to live in Guatemala, I recommend that you read her travel reports. I leave you with a small sampling of her recent entries:
- Guatemala: Menchú forms indigenous political party
- Guatemala: veladoras (video clip)
- Guatemala: snapshot studies in Petén
- Guatemala: Medical aid for Mayan communities near Lake Atitlán
- Guatemala: Film – Killer’s Paradise
- Guatemala: Film – Estrellas de la Línea
- Guatemala: some headlines in news here this week
- Guatemala: thousands of women protest wave of “femicides”
- Guatemala: 15 die in marketplace fire
