I’ve said it before and believe I don’t get tire of repeating it:
Many Guatemalans take advantage of the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere in and around La Antigua Guatemala to spend some quality time with friends, family or by themselves. The best things in life are free or nearly free as Claudia put it, “… simple times, simple pleasures, family, friends, nature… ”
Don’t get me wrong, you DO need money to live or to try to survive in Guatemala, as in the rest of the world, but in general, it seems that people in Guatemala live happier lives, with much less money and amenities than people in the U.S.A. and other wealthy countries; that’s my slight appreciation of two societies I have been lucky to live in most of my life.
What’s your opinion or what have you observed in your trips to the land of the eternal Spring?
