Good question. I remember that the animal market was filled with animals that were to be sold (i.e., alive and trying to look their best) rather than animals that were slaughtered. There may have been another section where they were slaughtering animals, but we didn’t see it on the main field. So, I think you could visit the animal market where the animals are up for sale and avoid the disturbing slaughter scenes. Enjoy your trip!

I am planning on visiting San Francisco El Alto later this summer but am slightly fearful of the animal market. I am no animal rights activist but don’t think I would have the stomach to see animals being slaughter. Would you advise to avoid this area?

I’m embarrassed to say that there were times in Guatemala when I wondered why the bus driver didn’t just get a move-on, requiring even sketchier driving. Our travels on public transport around the world has given us a strong sense of fate…

@Caitlin: This photo was taken at 6 AM walking to Rotunda bus station…we also thought it captured the feel of the city well.

@D&D: It’s amusing how often we get asked for directions, especially when we look so out of place (i.e., the only foreigners around). Hope you make it back to Guatemala one day – there is certainly no shortage of markets, cities, treks, and ruins to explore.

We have had that happen before as well. I wonder, do they think we have a GPS handy? We only spent a short time in Guatemala, enough to see Tikal. Received an email to come home and work, so we cut the trip short. Seeing your photos makes me want to explore it more.
