I am not usually very excited about this kind of news, but I believe tomorrow is a very important day for Guatemala. Alvaro Colom Caballeros is leaving the presidency, as the worst president of the democratic era of Guatemala, maybe even the worst ever. The new comer is a former general of the armed forces, and definitively not the one I rooted for, but at this moment it seems to be doing things the right way (taking into account he is not in office yet).
Fmr. General Otto Pérez Molina will face many challenges, receiving the country with many problems, but we hope he can change some thing around, as for now, it has many people believing things can get a little better, including myself. Don’t get me wrong, I believe Guatemala is a country full of opportunities, with the best resources in the region, I also believe is a one of the best places to travel everywhere, but sometimes a government can make many things a little harder, now is time to close the door to what is left behind, and start a New Era, could it be related with the 2012 stories, hey maybe this all of what the Maya predicted, after all the Mayan region was centered in Guatemala, and most cities were here.
Good luck President Pérez.
