Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the private Spanish teachers yesterday in the cornucopia of options available for taking Spanish classes in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Spanish Schools entry. Once again, take all these options with a grain of salt since many of the flyers put more emphasis in the private part of the sale of the service.
Certainly, textbooks could be written about the world of Spanish classes in La Antigua Guatemala. Heck, even novels could be written about it; wait a minute, Ronald Flores already wrote a novel about the plausible ramifications of this exchange under the title of Un paseo en primavera (A Walk in the Spring).
If I was a writer I would write about the all the underground relationships and gossip that goes on underneath the façades of this Potemkin Village we call La Antigua Guatemala. This book would read like The Rum Diary of Hunter Thompson, but set in a town like the Savannah of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil of Clint Eastwood. Oh boy, how I wish I could write it! Maybe I could convince Guy to write. In the mean time, you could read Guy’s numerous entries about life in La Antigua Guatemala.
