Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Parking For Ponies

This is not something you see every day in your hometown.

The streets of Xenacoj are filled with people, horses, stray dogs, and a few vehicles.

Recently, construction vehicles have been navigating the narrow streets of Xenacoj on their way to building a highway around Guatemala City.  A child was hit by one of the construction vehicles a few weeks ago which led to protests and road closures throughout the village.  I don’t know the condition of the child who was hit, but I have come to understand that the construction crews agreed to follow another route to their desired destination to minimize traffic through Xenacoj.

Please pray for those who walk and drive the streets of Xenacoj that they would be safe.
