Poor neighbourhood in Guatemala

Poor neighbourhood in Guatemala

Streets of Guatemala City, that the railroad goes through, are surrounded by houses of poor inhabitants. This neighbourhood was among the better ones (no slum), the amount of trash in the street is negligible and houses are small, but well-maintained. Road crossings are not equipped with any signals and visibility "behind the corner" is very bad, therefore the train must go slowly and honk all the time. Both drivers and pedestrians know about it and luckily there was no dangerous situation.
