During the final Saturday of our trip, we visited the National Theater in Guatemala City and observed a ballet rendition of Don Quijote de la Mancha. My friend Hugo was one of the dancers. I knew Hugo many years ago during the mission, though we were never companions.
Outside the theater stands a larger-than-life bust of Miguel Angel Asturias, a native Guatemalan who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1967.
During our visit to the theater, we met my former mission president Julio Alvarado and his wife Blanca.
We also met Hugo's children.
Rhonda and Dakota in the theater.
Hugo also played the role of a gypsy.
