Guatemalan Street Market

Photo taken last April in Xela, Guatemala.

There is something about street markets. They are so colorful and so full of life. They give you a glimpse inside the culture of the place you are visiting. Oftentimes, you also can find so many treasures and unusual things. I took this photo while exploring Xela, Guatemala where I was studying Spanish for a week. It was really wonderful to see the beautiful produce that was growing alongside the fertile slopes of the volcanoes surrounding Xela.

    • Thanks Lucy! If you get a chance, send me an email to let me know how things are going and what you’ve been doing. I miss hearing about you but of course know you are very busy and enjoying yourself back in the UK! :)

      • Thanks for thinking of me Nicole! I’ve been really busy and hardly had internet access so I’ve not been online much. I’m trying to catch up on mundane (but essential) stuff while I’m here and also visiting family and friends. I hope all’s great with you and you’re getting a better summer than we are over here!

    • Don’t they look amazing? And the locals told me that these are the poorer quality produce and the best stuff is shipped to Western countries. I could hardly believe it as our produce never looks like this except for our three months of summer if you buy it at the farmers stand!
