La Antigua Guatemala sí es Guatemala

Intercultural Activities

Often I have said that La Antigua Guatemala is not Guatemala. I still hold this thought, mostly. However, there are cases or instances that make me look mistaken, and you know I am never wrong (except when I am not right).

Such an event occurred last Friday when on my way to work I spotted an event right in front of Palacio de los Capitanes, I grabbed my camera and took some shots to document the activity and then asked what was the event about to four different people participating and I received four different answers. Some girls at a booth told me it was a gastronomic fair sponsored by the Minesterio de Educación (Ministry of Education). A transit police woman keeping the traffic moving told me she didn’t know what kind of activity it was, but she knew it was something to do with Insol and Ministerio de Educación. Another person told me it was an Intercultural Fair sponsored by the Ministerio de Educación. Finally, I left with the certainty that it was an event sponsored by the Ministry of Education and nothing more.

Only in Guatemala you can find a whole bunch of people participating in an activity they know nothing about. 🙁
