Cool Find

Last week I was in the capital with a friend of mine, and we came across a used book sale. Even used books are expensive in Guatemala, so mostly we were just browsing and moving on. But then we stumbled on something really cool! A big stack of Life magazines from the 1960s, in Spanish. All kinds of articles about the US space program, President Kennedy, and celebrities of the day.

I bought half the stack of 30-something magazines, and my friend bought the other. They're fun to read through, but they will also be great for crafting. I'd been thinking about buying some vintage books in Spanish for this purpose, but these are even better! Here's a photo of three of them.
