LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
As part of an ongoing series of article regarding urban planning in La Antigua, this month we are featuring an article on the plans for expanding the pedestrian zones in town. As part of my job, I’ve had the opportunity to interview and talk with many different people, and the common hope for La Antigua’s future includes the elimination of noisy, smog producing traffic, a solution to the parking problems, and the expansion of pedestrian zones. The article “Pedestrianization and Parking Systems of La Antigua” address these issues and explains the plans and stages of a project currently underway to make our little town a walker’s paradise. Turn to page 66 to read more.
If you have the urge to do something a little different one of these weekends, why not head to the big city and check out the Museo Popol Vuh? Featuring one of the best collections of pre-Colombian and colonial art and traditional textiles, the museum is definitely worth a trip to Guatemala City. Turn to page 88 to learn more about the museum and to read an interview with the curator Dr. Oswaldo Chinchilla.
On an online note, I’ve been working hard on our Facebook page! If I find out about a cool event after it’s too late to put in our printed calendar, I post it on our Facebook page (on.fb.me/qXwfru). So go ahead, friend Qué Pasa! I promise I’ll accept and you’ll be able to check out our page for fun ways to fill your free time.
Best wishes, Keri
