Often in the past I have talked about the aesthetic values of Antigua Guatemala, from the architecture to the decoration and art. Here we value old and worn stuff, things with authentic character; the older the better. If it chipped or rusted is actually a plus. From doors to forged metal window crates and hand rails to furniture, everywhere you look you are encounter with natural ageing pieces that just feel right and enchanting. Take, for instance, this bar counter at the Fonda Doña Mile, look at all the antique decoration stuff, a disarray of items, yet they work well together, methinks. How about you?
