Guatamala: Land of Trees

Not my own pictures, but I took a tour of certain things Guatamalan.

Guatamala means The Land of Trees! I just knew there was something about it that spoke to me.

The first thing I noticed on my way there was their flag, but more importantly their Coat of Arms:


It made me wonder, if I had my very own coat of arms, belonging to who I am, and representing me, myself and I, what would it look like? I actually liked Guatamala’s Coat of Arms.

Next on my trip, is one of the odd little interests I have, and tend to visit them where ever I go, are cemeteries. Especially the really old ones, and well, the exquisitely interesting one in Guatamala, that made me think of a song by John Cougar Mellancamp, “Little Pink Houses.” No connection what so ever, just the way my mind works.


From the small to the rather large?


Then I found in Antigua – did I know it was in Guatamala? – This beautiful archtecture. Old regal buildings, cobble stone streets! The history that echoes through them!


And just the colors, the quality of antiquity which speaks at every street corner.


The richness of color is shown in the very cloth woven there. I have a hanging on my wall, from where, I have no clue, but with the kind of endless possibilities, it could very well be from Guatamala.


Adiós y gracias por todos los peces
