More photos from Nebaj
At the top you´ll find a picture of Stacey and Pedro, a fascinating, articulate, opinionated Maya. He is an excellent teacher and I´m learning amazing things about Guatemala, the Maya, and the holocaust here in the 80´s. Sylvia is pictured with one of the girls in her host family in their kitchen. She is lucky to have an interested and interesting family. The 3rd photo is of a pig and a dog with my house in the background, followed by a woman (with her cat) doing laundry; picture was taken from the roof by our classrooms. The final photo is a detail of a beautifully embroidered huipil or traditional blouse. The geometric shapes and animals shown are only found on huipiles in Nebaj. Enjoy!
