Here, Maya women do their laundry in the center of town. Children are strapped on their backs or running around the “Laundromat” while mama does the wash.
You will notice that there are several tubs (upper left in the photo and at the bottom) available for others as they arrive. Dirty clothing, bedding and other items are carried on their heads wrapped in another piece of woven cloth.
Fresh, running water is a new convenience to these Maya women living around Lago Atitlan. For them, this is modern living.
