One of the favourite activities Guatemalans enjoy to do on the weekends are these soccer matches. Most matches happen on Saturday afternoon and Sundays all day since many Guatemalans usually work on Saturday mornings. Soon though, most Guatemalans will be glued to their television sets since the real and true FOOT BALL WORLD CUP will fill the agenda with 30 days or of foot ball matches from Brazil, the hosting country.
By the way, did you know that in Guatemala the work week can be of 44 hours, 8 hours per week day plus 4 hours on Saturday. However, during the week lunch is part of your 8-hour shift and anything beyond the eight hours is considered over time, paid at 1.5 the normal rate.
