Guatemala is a country of water and earth, lakes and volcanos. It’s a place where villages are hidden in the mountains above clouds and fog. It’s the small but extraordinary village of Livingston where the African and Caribbean cultures come together. It’s the huge markets that cover the streets with fruits and vegetables. It’s the multicolored roads of the cities where huge trucks decorated with flames and lightning signs busily drive around. It’s the Mayan culture, still as vivid today as it ever was, breathing in the lakes and flowers, in the incense scented air, in the sumptuous costumes in a thousand colors and in 23 different languages spoken throughout the whole country.
