Francisco Marroquin University
photos by Lois and Don Porter

The beautiful campus of the Francisco Marroquin University is located in an upscale section of Guatemala City. The campus houses two very attractive and fascinating museums: Ixchel Museum, of textiles and handicrafts, and Popol Vuh Museum, of Mayan artifacts -- especially pottery from pre-hispanic times. The campus also houses the FLAAR Digital Imaging Center, where Don is doing some volunteer work while we are in Guatemala. The Director, Nicholas Hellmuth, is here only part of the time. The full-time administrator of the center is Cindy Shepherd.
