Antigua’s color palette: green

Antigua’s green corner, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

This corner has appeared in two previous photos: the street lamp on Antigua’s rush hour and the green wall on Opposite ends of life. Today I decided to give the whole corner and a little bit a local’s insight.

You can get some of the best cookies in Guatemala right there. The owners decided to name the business “Cookies,” a very appropriate, if you ask me. They sell about 18 different kinds of cookies, fine pastries and cakes. You can buy a dozen cookies for about US$3.

Next door, to your right, is one of La Antigua Guatemala’s landmarks, Doña Luisa Xicotencatl, a restaurant where many people meet, local and foreigners alike, for coffee, lunch or breakfast on the weekends. In my opinion, they have one of the best bakeries in the whole country. It is a torture to walk by the bakery everyday because of the smell that emanates from the ovens: fresh breads of all kinds (banana, nuts, chocolate, etc.), cookies, croissants, cakes. If you come to Antigua, please, do pay them a visit, you will be very happy you did.
