Visit to Guatemala

I visited Guatemala last week for work. I was in this country for 4 days and had a chance to take a taxi ride and see the City for nearly 4 hours. Guatemala – means Land of Trees. And yes, it is indeed a Land of Trees. The city is covered entirely with mountains, and it has three active volcanoes.

I took some pictures of the city. Take a look.

I also visited the fruit and vegetable market.

Guatemala is a meat eating place. People didn’t even know what vegetarian means. It was hard to explain in English what I needed since it is a Spanish speaking country. Anyway, I tried to eat as little as possible, and it was mostly salad, bread, soup.

Even though it was a short trip, I enjoyed the place. The people are amazing and very nice. If you get a chance, definitely visit Guatemala.
