Our Habitat trip next month is to Salamá, Guatemala. So, being the prepared traveler I am, I checked out a guidebook from the library in an attempt to learn more. Salamá makes it in one paragraph on page 233. Funny, I know that I'll have more than a paragraph's worth of stories to tell afterwards.
What I learned from Frommers today:
Salamá is in Baja Verapaz.
Verapaz means true peace.
Salamá is the provincal capital.
There is a beautiful colonial era church with a 18k gold decorated altar.
There is a temple dedicated to the goddess Minerva.
The area is known for arts and crafts.
I will have to have to find some other sources of information. This will not suffice.
LOVE IT! So excited that you are doing your "homework" and can be better prepared than your fearless leader.ReplyDelete
