Stop, watch and observe

Alto, mira, observa

Sometimes I forget that I should simply disconnect from the Internet and go outside. This time Rudy Girón took me out, and there was a rainbow posing just for us. This reminded me that, while out, sometimes I should stop, watch and observe. Walking around La Antigua Guatemala is amazing and I’ve heard that some people even call Antigua the Venice of Guatemala. I hope it’s true, and one day I’ll go to Venice to evaluate the comparison.

Yet, why compare? Antigua is very diverse, a lot of life, beautiful volcanoes, lovely people, and just a great overall ambiance.

So, next time you are in La Antigua, just stop, watch and observe 😉

    I’m sorry – where ? Venice ? Ja-ja-ja. Mis amigos italianos are going to let me have it for that one. Just kidding !
    Great moment in time captured on film, Arturo. I have learned to do exactly what you suggest – stop, watch and observe – when I visit La Antigua. It did take me a few visits to learn this, however, only because there is so much to watch and observe. I am hoping to return sometime after semana santa next year for some more stopping, watching and observing. All done, of course, over licuados, cappuccinos, and Mozas. Thanks for the photo, and the reminder.

  • Hey LAGDP editor: why but why you didn’t include YOUR picture? It was surreal to see the man behind the lens. Arturo is not shy but you my friend…

    Just amazing! I to get stuck in my little office and forget that I should just take sometime and go outside and just see His Glory! Great shot, love the shadowy contrast.

  • A beautiful scene to catch. I don’t see rainbows often.
