Paca Nation

Paca Nation ;-)

Because I am a politically correct person I will say that Guatemala is one of major recycling centers for things discarded in the good old U.S.A. I will say that Guatemalans give a second life to things dumped by estadounidenses (Unitedstatians) and Canadians to a lesser degree.

I have talked about this “recycling” in the following entries:

By the way, Paca is the term used in Guatemala for bale or large package normally shipped in a palette, which is the way these second hand or discard clothes make their way into Guatemala and other countries in Central America. Paca is also the name used for stores that sell paca clothing.

         I like the word “Unitedstatians” very much, Rudy.  You have ‘recycled’ a word and re-used it, true to your post !  Why didn’t I think of it before ?
         This post does make me laugh a little.  When family or friends find themselves in posession of something truly ugly, and they say “Maybe I’ll give this to charity,” I think “I may see that on someone in Guate. someday.” Maybe my concern is a bit too much, but I like to donate things that I myself would wear.
