Wow my mom called me really excited about this some weeks ago but I had not really notied it. Carlos Penia is the winner of Latin American Idol and he is from Guatemala. This is probably the biggest thing to have happened to the country, the whole country stopped for this day just to watch he final episode. According to the news the streets were empty and as soon as he was announced the winner the streets went into a giant sense of partying, fireworks illuminated the city, people went to get together in the main parts of downtonw to celebrate that a Guatemalan had won. I believe that more than ever Guatemala was united if only for one day under one cause and that was to support their idol, it was a day which will forever be kept as one of the happiest days in Guatemalan history.
