The pila is basically a Guatemalan home staple. Normally the pila design has a water tank in the center and two sinks, one on each side of the water tank. One sink is for hand-washing your laundry and thus its surface is ribbed. The other sink is for doing dishes and the surface is smooth. There is a water faucet somewhere near the water tank to fill it up. Now, Guatemalan pilas are not as beautifully designed as the pilas found in La Antigua Guatemala; don’t you agree?
