Running Errands With The Family

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Family Errands

On the other hand, Guatemalans don’t seem to be able to do anything by themselves. You need to run some errands, well, why don’t you take the whole family as as many as possible.

I guess this characteristic is most common with Latin families, right?
