Think of Guatemala and instantly you think of a land surrounded by volcanoes and a rich, colorful Mayan culture dressed in a tapestry of brilliant colors. The landscape is dramatic and diverse ranging from the low laying areas of Guatemala City to the hot, sandy beaches along the coast to the highlands surrounded by volcanoes.
When I close my eyes and picture Guatemala I see her lush, fertile brilliant green countryside. A place where crops are grown up the steep, fertile sides of volcanoes like pictured above. A world so mystical and so beautiful yet lurking in danger of natural disasters. I wouldn’t want to be farming here if the volcano decided to erupt.
I am nominating two bloggers whose pictures of the world have continued to inspire me each and every day. Sue (of suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com) and thewanderlustgene.wordpress.com.
Thanks Nicole for a fantastic photo of Guatemala. Over to Sue and thewanderlustgene.
