Women Washing

Greetings from Antigua….wish you were here!

Photo taken in Antigua, Guatemala of local Mayan women doing their wash in town.

They came as the sun begins to light up the water and warm up their hands. They carry all their clothing on their backs, scrub and wash it in the water, then place the wet clothing back inside the plastic bags to carry home. I can only imagine how heavy the bags must be with all those wet cloths. But their smiles were as bright as the sun reflecting off the water and colorful buildings surrounding them.
