Today is the Garifuna festival.
About 12,000 people in Guatemala are African descendants and they came in British ships mostly departing from Bristol.
A town called Livingstone in Izabal is where they have found a home and thrive They love drums and music and have a rich cuisine where you find from coconut shrimp to the famous "Tapado" witch is a seafood soup with plantain and coconut milk.
Happy Yumein to all the Garifunas in Guatemala!

Walking down the pebbled streets of Antigua Guatemala.
It is so colorful, like time stood still in the XVI century.
Antigua has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It used to be the capital of Guatemala, but it was destroyed on 1541 by a devastating lahar from the Volcán de Agua. As a result, the colonial authorities decided to move the capital five miles away to the Panchoy Valley, where Guatemala city is now.
There are many Spanish language schools in Antigua and it is one of the most popular and best recognized centers for Spanish language study.
Having a "Ceviche" in Cevicheria la Blanqui, Escuintla.
Escuintla is known as "city of the palm trees" and it is where my family come from in Guatemala.
We have the best seafood and ceviche is a marinade of seafood with lime juice, tomatoes, onions, parsley, and spices.
Very fresh and healthy!

Hiking the jungle in Tikal.
Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization.
in 1979 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This is a must do in Guatemala!
Dancing Salsa every weekend!
Salsa music is a fusion of Afro-Cuban musical styles
Salsa means 'sauce' in the Spanish language and carries connotations of the spiciness common in Latin and Caribbean cuisine.
It is a great exercise and reduce stress levels.
My favorite latin music are salsa, merengue, bachata, cumbia, chachacha and regeton.
Having a coconut of the road to the Pacific Ocean!
Very refreshing and only £0.25 each!
This is "Cocales" that means "Place of the coconuts"
Coconut water has a high potassium content and contains antioxidants
Come and try one!
