  • Hi Rudy,
    Happy New Year! and I received my photos and having trouble not drooling on them as I mat them. All the best in 2009 – Shelley

    Rudy thanks for everything you do on this site, I enjoy viewing your wonderful pics and reading your blogs daily and thanks again for sending your photos. I look forward to another great year here on LAGPD. Happy New Year!

  • I am happy to see the yellow building and the window. It makes a nice picture.

    I don’t have a lot to say about last year or this new year but here are some thoughts…

    I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama — at least I hope so.

    I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

    It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

    And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

    What a world we have and live in. Just think 2009 could be so much better than it will be.

  • Happy New Year! I’ve really enjoyed seeing these photos from Guatemala every day and your descriptions of life in Antigua. Sorry that I can’t decide on a favorite shot or series, I think they’re all great and hope that 2009 brings more…

    Hey Rudy, Thanks for a year of wondrous photos and commentary. I hope 2009 is a peaceful and a fruitful year for all. I absolutely love this end of the year photo…that golden color is amazing!

  • cynthia

    Un montón de gracias….many thanks for all of the time, energy, and thought you put into LAGDP. As an earlier comment noted, it is difficult to choose a favorite when all of the photos are so wonderful. I would have to say that as with today’s end of year photo, I truly enjoy and am enticed by the amazing colors; so warm and rich.
    I too hope that 2009 will bring joy and peace to all!

    Hello Rudy,
    Thank you for a great year of photos and blogs. The photos were all excellent, but I really enjoyed the posts that explained life in Guatemala; customs, phones, etc.
    Happy New Year. Hope to see you soon.

    I spent a New Year’s Eve in Guatemala City. My parents had just spent the Christmas holiday with me. I was in the Peace Corps. I was to send them back to US the next morning. We had just sat down to a lovely dinner in a nice hotel, when everyone went running out of the dining room. Not to be left out, mom and I went too. Dad held down the table. Out in the street it was wild. Everyone was screaming, cheering and yelling. A fireworks stand had caught fire! It was wonderful. What a show! One of my best New Year’s Eves ever!
    Thanks for everything you send out Rudy. It seems to serve us all and bring back memories and happy moments. Mil gracias.

    Thank you for the photos. I studied Spanish in Antigua this past summer at the Christian Spanish Academy. This picture looks exactly like that building. Is that where you took it?

    I just found this website a few weeks ago while researching Christmas in Guatemala and I love it! Your photos are beautiful.

    Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year.

  • You have so many wonderful images like this and a great insight into your part of the world which is very unfamilair to me. Happy New Year.

  • Deb

    Thanks for a great year in photos…and all the best in 2009.

  • Portland Oregon Daily Photo sends you heartfelt wishes for the new year. May your 2009 be filled with good health, riches of the mind and heart, loved ones returning home, an increased respect for our fragile planet, and the cessation of wars across the Earth.

    Great photo!

    Thanks to you too Rudy, I do appreciate all the effort you do for sharing with us the marvel of your art.
    And thank you for showing the world that there’s a beautiful place, spot from heaven, that is guarded by the shadow of three volcanoes, and full of the warmth of its people.

    Have a great new year!

  • Thank you everyone for your encouraging words. I promise I will try to live to your expectations for the following year. I have new stuff in the works right now, including a spanking BRAND NEW forum which I tried to have ready for Jan. 1, but ran out of time. I’ll let you know when the bulletin board is ready. Stay tune!
