Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Everyday Guatemala — Carrying wood fuel home

Often I think that Antigua Guatemala is not Guatemala. La Antigua Guatemala is a bubble where the Guatemalan reality is warped. Then, I come across vistas like this one of people carrying leña, wood fuel, or water. Or I drive over the many potholes on a 500-meter piece of road from Antigua Guatemala to San Pedro El Panorama totally neglected by the current municipal administration even though they still have tens of millions of quetzals on their unexecuted budget. Then, I come back to reality and conclude that La Antigua Guatemala is still Guatemala.
