Bring on the Color!

Pinkness by Luna McCarthy

One of the many things I love about Guatemala is the use of color. From the vivid colors in the local traje to the hues of the paint used on the local buildings, color is everywhere! While each culture and society has a list of “acceptable” publicly used colors, it is not as common in many places to see bright colors used for houses, offices or businesses, as it is here in Guatemala. Pink, bright yellow, turquoise, and royal blue are among the list of widely used exterior building colors.

    Could you imagine a school that is about 100 years old being painted pink anywhere else?
