Colors, busses and Bachata in Antigua
You probably have once heard about beautiful Antigua in Guatemala – no wonder so many people choose to study Spanish there! To really understand how beautiful this place is you must go there and see for yourself. I was blown away! I love colors and this city is just long narrow cobblestone roads of colorful old colonial houses everywhere. As a frame to this beauty three big volcanos are raising to the sky. There are no restaurants and cafés on the streets but every building have a backyard. And in them you find trendy eateries, cafés, bars and shops and more. There are so many hidden gems to be discovered in this city.
Louise and I spent three nights in a great hostel. We walked around, visited the local market, ate well and I even took private lessons in Bachata. And then we went off with our cameras on a parking lot full of the traditional so called “Chicken buses”. If you never heard of them I can inform that those are old US school busses serving as public transport in Guatemala. They are re-painted (of course very colorful) and very personalized decorated.
