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.


Clean roads, tall buildings and the city getting ready for Christmas.






The court and the state house.


The hotel where I stayed in Guatemala City.


The airport.


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.

    I also often travel to Central America and South America on official work. This is what I usually do. I take with me many packets of Khakra – dried chappatis with me and, keep them with me in case of emergency. You can find Khakras in Indian stores of different flavor and spices. I also carry an empty stainless steel lunch box during the trip. Early morning breakfast is continental breakfast in the hotel which consists of bread, butter, cheese, fruits, fruit juice, tea. And during breakfast that time, I fill this empty lunch box with cheese, bread, fruits etc. for lunch. Dinner is at the hotel and one can usually find pizza, fruit juices etc.

      I have seen Khakra in Patel Brothers stores. I had never traveled to this part of the world, so it was new for me. Thanks.
