Horseback Riding Through Town

Horseback Riding Through Town

Whenever you come across people riding horses or donkeys over the cobblestone streets of La Antigua Guatemala you feel like you are for real in the 16th and 17th Centuries.

It is not unusual to come across people riding horses, carriages, bicycles, motorcycles, automobiles, trucks, chicken buses and semis all within a few moments.

The reality is not that you do time-travel when you visit La Antigua Guatemala, but rather you travel to a place where different times, eras and centuries co-exist at the same time. That’s the only way to explain the horses and donkeys, the old church ruins, the wireless internet access, the G3 cellular networks, the satellite direct tv, the ATMs, the electronic banking from home, et-cetera.

    Hahaha, thanks Rudy! This photo brought back an interesting memory. I was once in San Juan del Obispo and nearly got ran over by a gentleman careening down the street on a horse.
    I love the vibrant color of the sky!

  • the clear blue sky of this pic reminds me of Lake Titicaca in Peru.
