Photographs of Guatemala

In an effort to think about things other than Thomas Friedman I have been reviewing photographs of my hitchhiking travels in Latin America with Amelia Opalinska.

I’ve decided to post a few of Amelia’s photos of Guatemala, taken in 2006. The structure that appears to be a Mayan ruin covered in concrete is located near the west Guatemalan town of Huehuetenango, birthplace of José Efraín Ríos Montt, who with U.S. backing presided over the systematic killing of Mayan peasants and other undesirable sectors of society in the early 1980s.
