A few months back I took a trip to Guatemala to try and learn how to surf (didn’t work out too well), but besides kicking it on the beach, I spent a few days in Antigua which is a very tranquil and nice colonial city about 45 minutes from the capital.

The nicest time of day was at dusk when the city seemed to slow down more than normal as the sky burst into  brilliant pinks, reds and oranges and the cobble stones streets seemed to radiate a certain tranquility that I hadn’t  ever experienced.  It was truly a beautiful place (every gangster has his soft side).
