Fray Rodrigo de la Cruz Retiring Home is one of the two retiring home that I know about in La Antigua Guatemala. Cabecitas de algodón, Little cotton heads, is the other one.
On Friday as I was going into the office I noticed that all the horse carriages that circulate in La Antigua Guatemala were parked in front of Hogar de Ancianos Fray Rodrigo de la Cruz (Elderly home) and had decorations all over. I approached one of the ladies helping the elderly and asked what was the event. She told me it was the anniversary of the nursing home Fray Rodrigo de la Cruz and they made accommodations for horse carriage rides for the elders.
I was happy to see that the elders are being cared for and that many businesses in La Antigua Guatemala sponsored many of the rides. This is a positive vista that gives me hope for this troubled country of mine.
