So Many Smiles

Many Smiles by Luna McCarthy

If you are a well seasoned traveler, you know there are “happy” countries…countries that seem, (according to our personal climatization and customs), happier than others. Guatemala is one of those countries. Walking through the streets, you will hear workmen laughing and singing, children playing games and chasing each other around, men standing outside the bank telling jokes and guffawing loudly. This is a passionate society and even though there has been so much trauma and loss in this country’s history, what usually shines through the people’s faces is the love for their families, patience and tolerance of others and a true appreciation for life.
