If you are a fan of people watching you are hard-pressed to find a lovelier place than La Antigua Guatemala to enjoy the lazy hobby. Whether you find a bench in Parque Central, Tanque de la Union, Cerro de la Cruz… or perhaps, you simply prop yourself against one of the many boldly-colored walls that line the calles and avenidas, like this man… the scene before you is always beautiful. I don’t think a day has gone by where I haven’t outwardly expressed my fascination with the beauty that abounds in this city. She’s like a diamond. You can look upon her faces, her edges, her corners from different angles and each time you will find a new hue to appreciate.
