Love in Guatemala ❤️ – 1

I had talked briefly of Blanca and Claudia in one of my first blogs :

Around the World with Love

And now I was on my way to be with them – new country, new people…. bonded only by love 💕. There was lot of excitement in the heart and a bit of nerves/fear too of the unknown. But curiosity and enthusiasm were stronger than the fear and – love always wins 😊❤️

I had only one point agenda – To give love and share my experiences. But it is amazing – how when we expect nothing we get much more – got so much love and care back ❤️🙏 – just like I got in LA, SRF ❤️❤️

LA and Guatemala — poles apart 😇

I was received by Blanca, Clau and Pepè (Blanca’s husband) It seems Blanca was more nervous – have I taken care of everything? Will uncle be comfortable? How will Pepè respond to uncle and so on… But once we had met and hugged all the tension was gone😊🤗

Staying in hotels and visiting tourist attractions is not half as much fun as living with families and sharing lives. Blanca and Pepè have a one bedroom apartment in downtown Guatemala. The bedroom and the living room were big with a good terrace. You could see Blanca, the architect’s touch all over the house 😊 Both, Blanca and Clau are architects!! I was given the bedroom with new white linen 👏👏 and Blanca and Pepè had moved to the living room. I was so touched🤗🙏

I had bad throat and Blanca assured that I had herbs and hot water gargles and honey and hot water and what not🤗 Knowing that I am a fruitarian the fridge was filled with fruits😊❤️. We had traveled all over the country and Pepè would always carry my bags👏🤗

Proved once again-

Love is all there is 💕- God is Love

Gautemala is so much like India in so many ways. Shall keep sharing my stories in the days to come. But for the language and the looks I could as well be in Delhi😇. Just replace temples with churches. Where Blanca lives is like Old Delhi and where Clau lives is quite like New Delhi😊

Next day : Walked around downtown — window shopping, an organic drink made of 40 year old recipe in a classy small cafe with walls lined with paintings; lunch with live Marimba; later coffee in a roof top café; Pepè’s father too had joined us. Could see whole of the city and the side of the city where Clau lives from the café; all in one day💃🏻

Love you my bonita sobrinas 🤗😘

Good beginning. Taste of days to come
