Newspaper Stand in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Dead Tree News

Does anyone still read dead tree newspapers? Well, in Guatemala paper media is still very popular. I am sure in this electoral year, there will be new newspapers on the stands soon; the kind paper that appears every four years, you know.

What’s your favourite Guatemalan newspaper?

    I check out Prensa Libre online every day while up here en El Norte, and when I’m in Guate I buy it at the corner in your photo. Below is a newspaper guy I sketched on my first visit, years ago. He was a few doors down from La Condesa, facing the park.

      Love the body language in the character here! Watch out Rudy; cartooning is also a highly expressive art and capable of capturing the moment….in the right hands of course!.

        Gracias. But I never mess with cameras– no eye for it. I draw from mental snapshots.

        • You don’t need no stinking camera, my friend, your eye and pencil is more than enough.

            Gracias, Rudy.

      • Yes Canche, I agree. As I said earlier, I have been lucky to enjoy his cartoons for many years now.

    • Thanks so much Mercutio57 for sharing your cartoons with us. I have been lucky to have enjoyed them for many years.

    …. once I had my breakfast at the La catedral hotel in Antigua, every morning I go to Lily who sells papers on the corner of Parque Central, buy my Prensa Libre , have a chat with her and then head to Cafe Barista for a Caramel Latte and reading my paper… This has become my routine for years now whenever I’m in Antigua and of course Lily is now a very dear friend of mine and each time I pass that corner during the day, I always stay a while and chat.

    • That sound like a great routine Jeaninne, I will accompany you next time you are in town.
