This is how we do Snapchat stories in Antigua Guatemala. People actually meet in person, they chat and catch up with the latest stories and gossip. If they like something or otherwise, they say so; no thumbs required. To share a story, they walk the distances that separates the two friends and the tale is retold. Oftentimes, they do this while having a refacción, snack. Quite often coffee houses are great venues for group chats or hang outs, but sometimes the public lavaderos, washbasins, work just as good. I know, I know, we’re still old-fashioned.
