Soul of the earth
Photo essay: Peeking into Guatemala

Keyvan Tabari
April 9, 2006

abstract: Guatemala City is the proverbial “Center” of the country. It is the political, economic, and cultural capital of Guatemala, and it has as many as thirty percent of its population. Tourists, however, are generally told to avoid its streets because they are unsafe. Instead they are taken to the provinces. There is much to see there. That way we saw Guatemala’s three other faces: the old Mayan, the indigenous highlands, and the colonial Antigua. Each had its charm and magic, but every time we came back to reality in Guatemala City, as all roads went through the capital.

keywords: Guatemala* Maya* Antigua.
