The photo above is one of my all time favorites. Clicking on any photo will open a nice large gallery viewer.
A small Mam Maya village in the highlands of Guatemala, Juitun, about 3 hours outside of Quetzaltenango.
I spoke in my last blog about the problems with obtaining potable water. I finish these photos with a picture of the creek that is used for water. There is running city water to parts of the town but it is unfiltered and not healthy for domestic use. When I was there taking these photos in 2004 I told the people I would try and see if I could get interest going in a water treatment facility. At that time I had a very poor website and had little success in generating interest.
This is an opportunity for me to try again. If there is an “Angel” out there I will gladly donate several weeks of my time coming to help you get something started. Anyone seriously interested contact me and we can talk. Everyone else, I hope you enjoy these photos. This day was very special to me.
