On our first full day in Guatemala City, the group decided to go to a Festival run by the UN in Guatemala City first, it was interesting,however it seemed “fake” as me and both Mr.Kempe noted. Next, we decided to go to the market, as we looked around the numerous little stalls, i thought it was a bit of a tourist trap, however once we went to the lower part of the market, where the food was, we found a non-touristy place where we had food, that was home cooked, and extremely good.
We left for the AirBNB and hung out there until we went to a mall, that had been built, and it showed the major differences in the social equity system in Guatemala.
I can’t wait, to explore this beautiful country more. Finally, I hope to learn more about Guatemala and the numerous different types of people within this small country. I also want to study the impacts of the Civil War and how Guatemala has moved on or at least tried to move on. I am overall excited to explore the many places in this beautiful small but extremely interesting country.
