Helado is the Spanish word for ice cream. The warm winter weather has been a bonanza for the ice cream carts around Antigua. Here we see the traditional Guatemalan-style ice cream handcart. The paint style of the handcart is so typical of Latin America and even more so in Guatemala that even public buses are painted using the same techniques.
Countdown side note: Today’s entry is number 293 so far and we continue with a countdown to post 300th. Please, send the link of this site everyday to your friends and family for a few days and explain to them what we are trying to achieve. I will send the best ten photos (4″x6″) of this site to the person that makes the first comment after the 100,000 visit. See the entry on January 18th for further details.
