Sometimes boggling to the mind given the standard living conditions, Guatemalans are a very happy people. If you have Guatemalan friends, even those you know are having a difficult time, and you ask them how they are, they will almost always reply, “Bien, bien!!” Not just one ‘bien’, but two!! They genuinely seem to be more concerned with how you are doing. For example, these 3 little girls come from extremely poor, volatile and at-risk families and the joy and love and purity still shines from their faces.
