Antigua is a clean city. This is a photo of a Trash can in Guatemala.

This is a nice photo of a Volkswagen beetle in Guatemala. These old VW bugs are everywhere in Guatemala and Central America.

(This is another photo of laundry washing facilities in Guatemala, where they wash their clothes by hand.)
