Travel Theme: Sweet   16 comments

Wow, look at me posting one a day – sort of.  Since I normally don’t post on Monday, I thought I’d participate in one of Ailsa’s Travel Themes, this time Sweet.  Check out her blog post on the subject for interpretations from many more folks.

Guatemalan Sweets

These images were taken in a little town up in the Guatemalan Highlands.  Even in today’s modern world, some of these towns really seem to have been frozen in time (at least partly).  Since my little room was just a block away, I strolled the main square at night, coming upon these unusual-looking sweets.  They stuff limes with sweet rice?  Wow!  I love limes, I love sweet rice!

Next day I came upon this little sweetie playing with her friends just outside a village I walked to (no road access).   There were no adults in sight.  They were wild and free!  It’s sad that in this country nowadays the kids are kept under supervision all the time, the parents being scared of dangers exaggerated by the media. Why in my day…nevermind.

  1. The little girl I. Love. So. Much.

    • Haha, thanks. Yep, she wormed her way into my heart lightning quick too. It was cute because there was a little boy (from her village I assume) who was obviously smitten with her.

  2. Limes and sweet rice – amazing and a stunning photo to go with.

  3. Lovely photos. Did you try any of the sweets?

  4. Loved the images, especially the girl’s smile.

  5. I am amazed of your photos. Wow… The light that is in the little girls eyes – that is giving hope. Thanks for sharing (thanks for visiting my blog Far Away) 😀

  6. How cool! Unfortunately (for my waistline) it has inspired me to go exotic sweet shopping at lunchtime. I have a choice of Indian and Lebanese near where I work.

  7. Such a beautiful portrait of the little girl!

  8. The little girl so well captured, the others photos so delicious… 🙂

  9. Surprisingly, my mouth watered at that rather unusual sweet treat.
    The portrait of the little girl is very charming.

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
