Guatemalan Wealth of Colors and Textiles

Colors and Textures From Guatemala

I don’t know in what position is located Guatemala in terms of wealth resources as measured by the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Gross National Product (GNP), but I am sure that if the wealth of country was measured by its people, the richness of their cultures and traditions, the wealth of its colors, the diversity of its flora and fauna, et cetera, then Guatemala would be among the richest countries in the world.

Measusring a country’s wealth only by its money does not make much sense, don’t you think?

No sé en que ubicación está Guatemala en la escala del valor monetario medida en términos de Producto Interno Bruto (PIB), pero sí sé que si la valor de un país se midiera por su gente, por la riqueza de sus culturas y tradiciones, la abundancia de sus colores, la diversidad de su flora y fauna, etcétera, entonces Guatemala estaría entre los países más ricos del mundo.

¿No creen que medir la riqueza de un país únicamente por su dinero como que no tiene mucho sentido, no?

    I could not agree with you more. Especially as regards Guatemalan textiles!

    • @Meg, thanks for the visit and your kind words always. I know you love Guatemalan textiles, I will do some close-up photos and I will send them to you. Say hi to Ben.

    Ha-ha, yes, this is why I only wear sunglasses when I’m in Guatemala—the colors are blindingly wonderful.  Can’t wait for another visit !

    • @Eric, wearing sunglasses is indeed necessary while visiting Guatemala.
