Main Plaza of Ciudad Vieja

Main Plaza of Ciudad Vieja by Rudy Girón

In my recent incursions to Ciudad Vieja I’ve happily surprised of all the new improvements done around the town. The plazuela right in front of the Ciudad Vieja cathedral is one good example of the new works being performed by the Municipality. I also two municipal pools and improvements to the municipal stadium and children’s park. I guess that when our local governments really do work for the people and not for themselves, one gets to see a lot of progress; don’t you agree?

    As soon as my local government actually works for me, I’ll let you know.  Felicitaciones, Ciudad Vieja !  😀

    • Well Eric, normally in Guatemala we don’t trust our local and national government and often we see very work being done, but sometimes, only once in a while, a passionate and committed person gets elected. 🙁

        This is why I am saluting Ciudad Vieja with my cup of best-in-the-world Guatemalan coffee.  Speaking of coffee, Rudy, it looks like I am running a bit low.  Maybe it is time for another trip to the land of eternal spring so I can stock up?  😀
