Guatemala: The Land of the Eternal Spring

Guatemala: The Land of the Eternal Spring

This photo of the illuminated garden was taken from the dining area at Quinta de las Flores, where I was lucky enough to have dinner with John and Catherine who visited La Antigua Guatemala from Portland, Oregon. Too bad we were not able to repeat it due our busy schedules.

My public gratitude and thanks goes out to both of them who donated some items from the Amazon Wish List as a way to support to work that goes behind the making of La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo. Thanks to Catherine and John, I can now say that the photo-taking process is fully ecological green and panza verde green! 😉

The photo above makes me think of the film Mightnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Too bad I did not get at least one of the many Maximones in display at Quinta de las Flores Hotel.

If you want to learn more about Maximón, please visit the web site of Tim Hiiliard’s Home. From his web site you can read this full page article about Maximón which appeared in Prensa Libre; Guatemala’s largest newspaper. Now, if you want to buy your own Maximón to take back home, please visit El Curandero Gallery, where they have a great collection of original and antique Maximón figures and Maximón Mask.

I guess I owe to do a series on Maximón, what do you guys think?
