From now on, I will present a different country each week. If you want to see your country portrayed here, post a comment on Tell us about your country. When you access it, you will be able to read an example. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
Today we’re going to meet Guatemala. I don’t know very much about this country but my friend Karin showed me that Guatemala is worth a visit for sure.

Welcome: Bienvenido(a) (in Spanish)My country is very beautiful. It’s known as the “Everlasting Spring Country”. We call it like that because the weather is very nice. Never too hot, never too cold. Trees are always green and flowers are always blooming.
There are tree things I like about Guatemala. One of them (probably the one I like the most) is its beautiful nature: rivers, lakes, mountains, volcanoes, jungles…
The second one is its history. We were the homeland of the Great Maya Civilization. So, we’ve got beautiful Maya sites. Then we were conquered by Spaniards. So, we’ve got beautiful Colonial cities. And now, we are a modern country, with a beautiful (and modern) city.
The third and final is our people and culture. Our people are Maya descendants… unique in the world.
So, Guatemala is unique… and those who love it call it “Guatelinda”. =D
