Antigua Guatemala keeps a light hand on the Christmas throttle. It’s not like the in-your-face fake and be merry season, which starts before Halloween and is endured in our more Northern climes.

In this series of posts I Mr. Yokobsens will talk about my daily activities as the man to feed, cook, shop and prepare food on a daily basis for friends, family, travelers and guests that share our home over the next six months in Antigua Guatemala.
The Central Park in the city of Antigua is a very beautiful spot to come and relax and just watch the world unfold around you. There are people reading books, newspapers, kids hanging out and the odd lover’s smooching on the park benches. When I sat in the park, I found it very peaceful and loved to people watch.
As I sat on the benches I could not help but notice the Shoe Shine Boys. These are young children, some I am guessing to be as young as six years old.

When I got to the Villa de Antigua, a mix of Spanish colonial architecture and modern brightness, I was greeted by my Canadian hosts who showed me to a beautiful room with high rafters and a generous terrace. From there, in the fading light, I saw the sun setting over three volcanoes, one of which (Fuego) was still belching out a plume of smoke from its furnace insides. Spectacular.
