Antigua’s street sweeper

School bus and street sweeper, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

Street sweeping is still done manually in Antigua. You can see the street sweeper carrying his trash can and a broom which is made with dried branches of a bush.

I will make sure to take a snapshot of the broom itself next time.

    He seems to do a fine job! The curb, gutter and street look pristine. I would sure hate to try to sweep a cobbled street! Also, thank you for your food series, Rudy. I learned a lot about Guatemalan cooking, and I’m REALLY hungry to try some of it for myself! Just beautiful photography.
