Neo: What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
Morpheus: No, Neo. I’m trying to tell you that when you’ re ready, you won’t have to.
Guatemalans of the world unite!
This has always been my mantra and that’s why I often meet and share time with top-level Guatemalans doing extraordinary things or simply making the world a better place for everyone. That’s how I was fortunate to spend time with the developer of this creative campaign to promote Guatemala. Perhaps you have heard about it.
“Perhaps you need a little Guatemala” is a campaign to promote the enchanting beauty of Guatemala as country brand, developed by Manuel Romero-Close, a Guatemalan living in Australia. Go figure! Manuel created the hash tag #PerhapsYouNeedALittleGuatemala on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, as far as I know, and invited everyone creating quality content to use it. Of course, it was only a matter of time before Manuel’s path and mine would cross and we have been communicating ever since. So, it was with great delight that I spend some time with him and his son in their visit to Antigua Guatemala. These two photographs are made with his signature style of throwing his son into the air at iconic places in the world.
