Old town Quetzaltenango

None of the guide books talk about an "old town" in Quetzaltenango, but that's what this part of town looks like. Moving to a new lodging found us among low colonial-style buildings with faded paint on stuccoed walls.
We've seen buildings like these in La Candelaria (in Bogota, Colombia), Antigua, and elsewhere, but didn't expect to find them here, in Guatemala's second largest city, even though it has significant historic buildings around the Parque Central and elsewhere.

It's been a good city to visit. It's not on the tourist trail, at all, and we've been pretty solitary as tourists visiting the vegetable growing towns nearby and the Fuentes Georgina hot springs (other posts to come).

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
