This cover is hotel stationery from Guatemala City, probably postmarked there (very light cancels on dark stamps), sent to Alhambra, California.

Backstamped with Buzonista 1 handstamp (letter carrier's mark).

Two patriotic labels affixed to the back commemorate the first year in office (July 3, 1955) of President Carlos Castillo Armas, after a CIA-backed coup the previous year. He was assassinated two years later.

You are in ... the USA.
