As you’re gazing at Enchanting Nook #1 at the Hotel Centro Colonial Antigua, spin your head around to your right and look up. There you’ll find Enchanting Nook #2. These beautiful doors at the hotel always leave me wondering about what may be behind them. I picture myself there, peeking out from the tiny balcony so that I might soak up the energy from the single ray of sunshine that is perfectly highlighting the golden door. If a wanderer moves past, I might glance down with an innocently nosy curiosity about who would be treading below me… I will wonder if that wanderer will find the hotel as beautiful and alluring as I do.
