A Saturday in Antigua

antigua1

Karu is one of the creativedirectors in Leo Burnett. She is married with Santiego (right picture) who is also a creative director in Ogilvy. They have a baby daughter named as Mila. She is super cute. This super nice Guatemalan family invited me for a trip to Antigua. This place is really famous in Guatemala. Everybody was telling me that you should go there. It’s like 1 hour drive from Guatemala city.

Antigua was the capital before Guatemala city in old times. However this place had some disasters like volcano and earthquakes so the city moved and growed out of Antigua That’s how Guatemala city appeared.

Eskiden buras覺 bakentmi asl覺nda ama yanarda patlamalar覺, depremler falan derken insanlar buradan uzaklam覺 ve Guatemala city bakent haline gelmi.

The general feeling in Antigua is really nice. The atmosphere is very peaceful. Now many people wants to live here. Guatemalan or foreigner doesn’t matter. That’s why the house prices here a lot higher comparing to Guatemala city.

imdilerdeyse herkes buraya yerlemek istiyor. Guatemala City’nin kemekeinden ka癟mak istiyormu Guatemalal覺lar. Yaln覺z Guatemala city kemekese bu insanlar 襤stanbul’da ne yapar bilemiyorum. :) Sonu癟 olarak yerlilerden tutun buraya gelen yabanc覺lara kadar buraya yerleme konusunda b羹y羹k bir talep var. Dolay覺s覺yla burada ev fiyatlar覺 da Gutemala city’den 癟ok daha pahal覺.

Antigua’s economy is reliant upon tourism and it markets itself as a luxury Caribbean escape. Antigua is also supported by the growing medical school and its students. Many hotels and resorts are located around the coastline.

Oteller, hosteller, misafir evleri dolmu buras覺 haliyle. Guatemala’ya gelen herkes buraya gelip bir ka癟 g羹n konakl覺yor 癟羹nk羹 gezilecek yap覺lacak 癟ok ey var.

This is the Antigua team. Karu, Santi, baby Mila and me. We ate a very tasty food here. They also have melted cheese comes with baguette bred. So you dip into cheese and eat it. Yummy. Drinks were “Moza” a local beer brand. Looks like a coke with black color.

I wanted to buy some things from here since Guatemala is my last stop for this route. Then we came to a bazaar kind of place. It’s like a giant market all about Guatemala stuff.

I really liked these hand made big cats. Wanted to buy one but there is no place in my bag for this. When I checked the price I saw it was quite good for the thing. So I decided to buy it. Now I have this orange cat with me and I have no idea how I will carry it back to Turkey.

Mekan覺 gezerken bu el oymas覺 korkun癟 kedileri 癟ok sevdim, Komikli korkun癟lu mimikleriyle alsam m覺 diye d羹羹nd羹m. antamda bunun i癟in bir yer yoktu tabiki ama fiyat覺 g繹r羹nce de dayanamad覺m ve ald覺m. Guatemala’ya bir daha m覺 geleceiz yahu diyip o gazla bir hamle yapm覺 oldum. Olduk癟a 癟覺lg覺nca bir hamle oldu. Bu koca kedi elimde 襤stanbul’a nas覺l gelicem bilmiyorum. Hi癟 bir fikrim yok.

Cathedral of San Jos矇The original church was built around 1541, but suffered several earthquakes throughout its history and the first church building was demolished in 1669. The cathedral was rebuilt and consecrated in 1680. By 1743 the cathedral was one of the largest in Central America.However, the devastating 1773 Guatemala earthquake seriously damaged much of the building, though the two towers at the front remained largely intact. These have undergone restoration work, and the cathedral has been partly rebuilt.

After a long trip around Antigua we hit ourselfs to a bar with a terrace. Grabbed a couple of beers and returned to Guatemala City at evening.
