    Walking through the old centre of the city of Guatemala, the central post office building is striking since it crosses an airlift a street with heavy traffic. This the Chair very close by, we could not enter since it was closed but if you admire it from below with its typical colors and building beauty. It cannot be see if you walk around the area.

    The former postal Palace is located at the same height as the Metropolitan Cathedral of Capital City; in fact, there is a straight road linking both monuments (the Avenue 7 if I remember correctly). It looks much in the photos that neo-colonial air, in pastel shades. The more paradoxical is that it houses the post headquarters in a country that lacks this service for 15 years (if you want to send a postcard, officials tell you to send it by UPS?). I think that this only happens in North Korea.

    The municipality is making an extraordinary effort to conserve it and have different art exhibitions. The only thing to regret is that El Paso's bridge is not available.

The arc of post photos were taken Holy Tuesday-the procession of Jesus Nazareno of the Beguinage of Bethlehem.
