Link of the Day 1/14/08: Listen to the sounds of Antigua, Guatemala

Never visited Guatemala, but you want to know what it sounds like? Last summer, Xeni Jardin recorded ambient audio in Antigua at night.

[Y]ou’ll hear a 10-minute chunk of ambient sound I taped one night in the old colonial city of La Antigua (literally, “The Old”), Guatemala: centuries-old church bells, popping firecrackers, rumbling mopeds, and a Kakchikel Maya family walking home on ancient cobblestone streets.
