The Guatemalan Embassy hosted an intimate New Year’s reception for the Guatemalan community now residing in the Netherlands on Saturday, January 10th 2015. The gathering, attended by some 100 enthusiastic guests who traveled from seemingly every corner of the Netherlands to be present at The Hague’s Madurodam was enjoyed by all.
Guests were invited to partake in an afternoon visit at the Dutch-themed park, along with the merriment of traditional Guatemalan tamales, music, and of course, a family-reunion-like reception that followed.
H.E. Mr. Gabriel Aguilera Peralta along with his staff were all on-hand to greet and mingle with their guests in true Guatemalan-warmth-style for which the Central American country is known and loved.
