Every bit of Guatemalan life is colourful. The sun beams down on lush greenery with vibrant flowers abundant, ancient American school buses get the coolest flashy paint jobs imaginable (the original yellow is far too dull), and every person effortlessly pulls off wearing a kaleidoscope of colour that would likely get you arrested in France.
We find that all this colour can brighten your outlook, it can liven up even the darker sides of life. The perfect example is this Guatemalan cemetery on the shore of Lake Atitlan. If I had the choice between ending up in a monochrome British graveyard or in this party cemetery, I know which I'd chose!
