I’ve had the unbelievable chance to visit Antigua, Guatemala and Guatemala City this past June as part of a work trip through my employer. Antigua itself is one of the most interesting cities I have ever been to. The volcano Pacaya and a number of earthquakes have transformed this city into a mixture of ruin and restore.
As you walk along the stone paved roads vendors sell a variety of artisan goods, including terra-cotta and wooden animals. The food is a delicious mix of Latin American flavors, among them flan and fried plantains.
