The Fast-food Invasion

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Maya women eating pizza on the streets

What are some of the most noticeable changes I have witness in Antigua Guatemala over the past decade. Well, the saddest is the disappearing of so many book stores and galleries. At the same time and rate, La Antigua Guatemala is almost completed invaded by fast-food restaurants. Let’s see if I can list them all from memory: Little Caesars Pizza, Wendy’s, Subway, Pollo Campero, Al Macarone, McDonald’s, Burger King, Pollo Granjero, Domino’s, Piccadilly, Barista, San Martín, just to mention the most obvious joints. So, sadly as we lose bookstores, we gain pounds of fast-food.

What are your thoughts regarding the abundance of fast-food restaurants in Antigua Guatemala?
