Returning to Guatemala City…

I have arrived.. a couple of days past.. I am so glad to be back. I missed Iniyal, and the country. My arrival was tiring.. having brought extra luggage full of oil paint and a roll of canvas. A costly addition to my check in baggage… but well worth the hassle. Quite tired and abused […]

Saturday Afternoon at the Movies…

Its been a while… I have been contemplating whether or not to write a note or more here and there during my somewhat dislocated return to Toronto. I have decided to write a few short words before I return home to Guatemala. Home. I have been enjoying a few small things while I am here… […]

When it rains…

..it pours. Guatemala is a lovely temperature… apparently the climate is considered¬† “An Eternal Spring. This means… lovely warm sunny weather – not too hot… just right – mixed with sudden light rainfalls and rolling thunderstorms… This certainly makes for an interesting day here. I am used to a lifetime of rainy days and damp […]

Things to See…

A couple of quick stitches to some photos of the apartment that we are (fingers weaved) about to move into… The living room, dining area, bar, and secondary kitchen entrance. The hallway leading to the three bedrooms is to the far right (not shown). The main entrance to the kitchen is hidden in photo -but […]

Art, Apartments, Armed Guards & Curry Home Cooking…

Armed Guards…. It doesn’t bother me that there are armed guards in front of every store, parking lot, apartment and community. “Every” is probably misleading… “Every” store, parking lot, apartment and community in the areas where we have traveled thus far. I am certain that there are areas with less protection, less security. We have […]

buscar los apartamentos en la ciudad de Guetemala

Looking for an Apartment in Guatemala City is like searching for treasure. It has come to our attention quite early on.. that there are some very unique spaces to be found here, well within our budget. Unfortunately… it is becoming increasingly frustrating for us to find what we are looking for. We know the ideal […]

Return from Antigua…

…yesterday afternoon. We arrived back from Antigua, yesterday afternoon. We were graciously afforded the company of Beth and James during an extended stay in Antigua this past weekend. The school that Iniyal and Beth are with, brought the new staff to Antigua to give them a taste of this very beautiful city, within reach of […]

Antigua!

It is 7am. I have showered. We are on our way out of the city today… on a field trip of sorts to the city of Antigua.

Three Days Ago…

…we boarded a plane. We transfered at Houston. From the window I watched the water far below… the occasional boat, distinguishable only by their wake. Finally land… rolling hills, small villages connected by roadways – partially covered by cloud. I was very excited about our journey, though somewhat saddened that my wife Iniyal and I […]

Another Day!

Her and I, educator and artist, have decided the comforts of home in Toronto Ontario for an adventure in Central America. She will teach middle school, I will continue with my painting career. […]
