This coming Sunday Guatemala will be holding general elections for president, vice-president, congress curule seats, and city mayors throughout the country. It is sad to read the news headlines regarding Guatemala. It seems like this tiny ‘paradisiac’
banana coffee republic has an innate quality to generate bad press. Like Tarzan, Guatemala jumps from bad stories to worse stories. It is a true jungle out here.
In the meantime, Guatemalans will cross their ballots to exercise the
democracy Mayan ball game. But, before that, they must know where exactly they will cast their vote and for that, they have to go to one of the many citizens’ registration booths; like the one pictured above in the entrance to La Antigua Guatemala.
I sure hope things were a litter better for Ann in Montego Bay.
