Just like a clockwork, the rainy season arrived on May. This means the zompopos will also arrive soon. Stay tuned for the zompopos!

In other places of the world, windows are just windows. In La Antigua Guatemala windows are shop displays, gardens, pet spots, plant pot spots, convenience stores, flag poles, decoration holders, bus stop benches, green houses, Christmas trees, et cetera.
What other uses you have for windows in your city?
This is wider view of the patio (courtyard really), garden and fountain shown in Skyping from the Garden published last month. As mentioned before, patios, garden and fountains are architectonic elements often in the typical Casa Antigüeña.

Since there are so many wireless Internet access points (Wi-Fi) available in La Antigua Guatemala, it’s not unusual to see people calling back home via Skype from gardens and patios. Of course, a headset is still needed if you want to keep your Skype-conversations semi-private.
Have you used Skype while in Guatemala to call back home?
Debido al hecho de que hay un sinnúmero de puntos de acceso al Internet inalámbricos en La Antigua Guatemala no es extraño toparse con viajeros llamando a sus casas a través de Skype desde jardines, patios y restaurantes. Por supuesto que los auriculares son obligatorios si se desea mantener la conversación medio privada.
We are so lucky in La Antigua Guatemala that almost every day of the year we can dine in the garden. The weather and temperatures conditions through out the year in Guatemala allow for outside dining. Of course, unless you rent an apartment or house in La Antigua Guatemala, the closest you can come to experience of the dining in the garden is if you visit the cafe at Vivero La Escalonia or Sabe Rico restaurant.
I am sure there are other restaurants with dining areas in the garden; can you share with us any other names?
I love walking around our garden at night. There’s something enchanting about looking at all the different flowers illuminated by spot lights. I like the scents and colors. Also, I like the fact any time of the year, there are always flowers in bloom.

Here’s an interesting idea, cover the patio with transparent laminas plus a pergola framework where one can hang the Colas de Quetzal (nephorlepsis spp.), helechos (ferns) and put other plants in pots around the fountain and one can enjoy of the patio year round, including during the rainy season.
