Only in LAG: Refacciones Tí­picas

Only in LAG: Refacciones Tí­picas

One of favorite sections of the Los Angeles Times used to be Only in LA and I believe that when I started to collect some off-beat and quite outrageous images from Guatemala, I was definitely inspired by Only in LA.

With today’s image of a menu showing refacciones tí­picas (Guatemalan typical/traditional snacks) and displaying hamburger, cheese hamburger and hot dog as the options, I begin my very own category of Only in LAG; lag being the initials of La Antigua Guatemala.

Here other great shots of Only in Guatemala:

  1. Desayuno Chapí­n menu (Guatemalan breakfast) which starts with huevos a la mexicana.
  2. Sin inhibiciones (without inhibitions) which shows some kids naked inside the main fountain in Guatemala’s Main Square in a Sunday’s afternoon.
  3. Please, leave your weapon at the entrance which shows the little handgun lockers at the entrance of bank.

    Years ago, at a bowling alley across the street from La Pradera mall in Guatemala City, there was a coat check room at the entry that had a similar sign. Only in Guatemala! (Don’t know if the bowling alley is still there today.)

    Oh, the bowling alley sign was one of the “leave your weapons at the door” variety. (Sorry my previous post wasn’t clear).

    The “postres” are way more enticing than the refacciones. Can anyone help me with the origins of that word ? I wasn’t familiar for that way of referring to snacks.
