Happy Children’s Day Guatemala

Monday, October 1st, 2012

Well in Guatemala today 1st. October is the “Children’s Day” (Día del Patojos, Niños, Chirices, Ishtos, Guiros, Ishocos) although many may not have the good fortune to celebrate it, but hopefully in the future to see all our children as happy as we see in this photo.

Hopefully the government will implement celebrations and how are you to all children and thus have a future with great memories 🙂

What do you think of children who do not have this opportunity?

Bueno en Guatemala hoy 1ro. de octubre se celebra el “Día del Niño” (Día de los Patojos, Niños, Chirices, Ishtos, Guiros, Ishocos…) aunque muchos quizá no tengan la dicha de que se lo celebren, pero esperemos en un futuro ver a todos nuestros niños tan felices como este que vemos en la foto.

Ojalá y el gobierno implementara celebraciones como estas para todos los niños y así tener un futuro con muy buenos recuerdos 🙂

¿qué piensas de los niños que no tienen esta oportunidad?

What to Do - Salvino Terranova

So many of us have incredibly busy lives, I am often thankful for the moments of downtime that I have. Then again, I think we all know the feeling of boredom that can come over us when we aren’t in constant motion. This makes me think of the many vendors in the markets all over town, that have a lot of downtime. Of course they have busy hours of the day, when they hopefully sell much of what they have to offer. But also, they must have hours of time when there is nothing to do. My friends make fun of me for keeping my old phone only because it has Tetris on it, but I bet you that a few of these market vendors totally understand why I would.

Extra Shine

Extra Shine by Jose Moreno

The shoe shine boys wander from person to person, hoping to make enough money to eat and hopefully have some extra to take home to their families. They generally don’t go to school, although there are a few programs in town where they might be able to go and eat a hot lunch or be taught the basics of literacy. If life is good, this will likely be their chosen profession for the rest of their lives.

Perfect Model by Jose Moreno

Everything about this little girl, in this terrific shot by guest contributor Jose Moreno, is lovely. From her dark mischievous eyes and chubby little arm, to her super cool pink outfit, to her very styling hair…she is one of the best models I have ever seen! Perhaps I should have saved her for Fashion Friday, but she was just to cute to wait 3 more days!

The Birds

The Birds by Luna McCarthy

It’s funny how the little children always want to chase the birds in Parque Central…you can see the boy pulling his mother towards them. I think its also a little comical how the little girl in the photo seems to strike the same pose as her father, as they watch the birds flutter about.

Protest by Luna McCarthy

Last week there was a seemingly random protest of students that came down 12 Avenida. Although it was small, they held up traffic and their enthusiasm couldn’t have been stronger. I tried to figure out the signs or what the protest was about; some of the signs were about the education system, but some of the signs appeared to be about every possible issue. Some signs said “Justice” and other were just vague statements about how they wouldn’t put up with “it” anymore.

Do any of you local readers know what this protest was actually about…?
