Adios, Halloween

and the more locally celebrated festivity known as the Day of The Dead…hangovers, anyone? they were flying the giant kites at Sumpango, pickpockets worked the crowd and now all we have to look forward to is Thanksgiving and Maximon’s birthday…there’s a new/old article under the ‘Latest’ tab, involving skeletons, so maybe there’s a theme here.

the need for speed

another ‘latest’ just published…if you’ve found this, go to the ‘Latest’ tab for the racing article….yeah, Guatemala has professional races and a great track..with a history..


or as we say here in Guatemala…since you’ve found this page, navigate to the other page, called ‘Latest’ for…yeah, the latest article about stuff in/around Antigua…some old, some new but hopefully entertaining..there’s no ads, no politics and no hidden agendas…its all free…my way, of saying thanks to my readers over the years..Mpineapples

yes, its a typical Sunday in Antigua….’Capitalinas’ those o so well-dressed babes from the City, the Mayan ladies in from the nearby villages early, bringing their children and stuff to sell in the park and a few befuddled tourist groups, mainly the Christian contingents, come to save the pagan babies for Christ and so on…do they perform baptisms here? with all the water sources being so heavily polluted…? just wondering…one dunk for God, another dunk for hepatitis? and yes, we’ve been having more earthquakes and the volcano Fuego has been going nuts lately…if only we had some virgins to sacrifice…alas…they’ve already been picked off.

And if you notice, I’m slowly adding more content to the site..some new, some old…but the price is right(free) and if you or anyone you know plans on coming to Antigua, consider downloading a great travel app, otherwise known as http://tripscount.co/antigua-guatemala

and yes, the August version of my monthly guide book is live, on amazon and Kindle….www.amazon.com/author/michaelsherer
