Visual contamination by José Moreno

The new government was elected in September this year, but the labels are still everywhere around Xela, producing a real visual contamination. I expect the new mayor to take steps sometime soon to remove all of them.

Night Panorama from el Baúl by José Moreno

Well this was a little rough because we were the last people to be in this place (maybe the only decent) but I managed to take this cute picture so if you can be there at this time this is what you can enjoy a great view around Quetzaltenango and a perfect sunset.

Bueno esta foto fue un poco peligrosa porque eramos lás ultimas personas en estar en este lugar (Quiza las únicas personas decentes) pero logré tomar esta linda foto asi que si ustedes pueden estar alli a esta hora esto es lo que pueden disfrutar, una gran vista de todo Quetzaltenango y un atardecer perfecto.

At the foot of the volcano by José Moreno

 

Located west of Guatemala, one of the highest volcanoes in Guatemala and active, the eruption did in 1902 was one of the largest in Guatemala, in 1922 we created a new crater that formed a new volcano called Volcan Santiaguito, now this is one of the most active volcanoes in Guatemala.

Never before and climbed the volcano, but if any reader would like to do a small tour organizing genius here, so write me a comment and if you have climbed Tell me that this is the experience.

Ubicado al oeste de Guatemala, uno de los volcanes mas altos y activo de guatemala, la erupcion que hizo en 1902 fue una de las mas grandes de Guatemala, en 1922 se creo un nuevo crater que formo un nuevo volcan llamado Volcan Santiaguito, ahora este es uno de los volcanes con mas actividad de Guatemala.

Nunca antes e escalado este volcán, pero si alguno de los lectores quisiera hacerlo seria genia organizar una pequeña excursion aqui, asi que escribanme un comentario y si lo han escalado ustedes cuentenme que tal es esta experiencia.

Tuesday from the hill by José Moreno

Cerro el Baúl, which also we know simply as El Baul, one of the favorite places for residents and foreigners to visit, it finds the southwestern limit of the town about 3km from the volcano called Cerro Quemado, the place is ideal for running to the top, eat on Sundays, and there are other attractive two extreme things can still be done there, you know what?

PD. this photo was not taken from the top, there you can have a better look and tell us what you thought.

Cerro el baúl, que tambien lo conocemos simplemente como El Baúl, uno de los lugares favoritos para residentes y extranjeros para visitar, se cuentra al limite sur-occidental de la ciudad a unos 3km del llamado volcan Cerro Quemado, el lugar es ideal para correr hasta la cima, comer los días domingos, y hay otro atractivo dos cosas extremas que aun se puede hacer allí, ¿Saben cual es?
