Volcanos and Beauty of Guatemala

Mi Guatemala

As I mentioned in a previous post, my sister came to visit after many years. We took a mini-vacation to Antigua, Guatemala. I promised pictures, and I want to share the beauty of this country. Although it is a third-world country, there are many beautiful places to visit. My favorites are the volcanoes that seem to follow you wherever you go.

Volcanes Acatenango and Fuego. Fuego is still active at a low level with steam visible  daily.

As you can see, Guatemala is full of beauty, nature and culture. Why not take a leap and visit an unknown place. Just let me know if you decide to stop by! I'll be waiting for you with a cup of coffee in one hand and a list of exciting adventures in another.

Thanks for stopping by,

Melinda

  2. Okay, I'm on my way. Order that coffee for me! Sadly, not... but you did tempt me to get on that plane. : ) Great photos and interesting post. I'd love to see more of your adoptive country.
    And too funny, my littlest is on the other side of teh world doing the same Spiderman poses. : )
