I explore Gualan for a few days and try to capture everything around me.

A little boy holds a bag of salt as he yells at his friend

The Guatemalan government has provided incredibly modest housing for this small community’s people in need.

This boy’s joy was so contagious. He happily skipped around, waving a stick.

This young girl carries corn on her head: something that is very common in rural Guatemala. The children often do tasks and work to help their family instead of going to school.

Two beautiful girls hold hands and smile at the sight of my camera.

I explore the very busy uptown Gualan.

People prepare very early to sell produce at the mercados (markets).

I get such an amazing feeling from exploring this town. There are all sorts of sounds, smells, and sights that are so different from back home.

Students get out of school at noon.

Stay tuned for Part 3!

Martha - It’s so beautiful and colorful! Guatemala reminds me so much to México. My favorite is the photo of the lady with the ice lolly against the blue wall. Beautiful.
