As mentioned before here, chamusca is the Guatemalan-Spanish word for an informal football match. All you need is a few friends, a dirt field and a fútbol ball to build life-long relationships. Soon, though, many football fields will be emptied for a few hours as everyone will be glued to the television sets watching the FIFA World Cup being hosted by Brazil in 2014. However, I am sure, the next 30 days we’ll see many more chamuscas everywhere between official FIFA World Cup games.
If you like the images in this post please help me spread the word by sharing. Thanks.
