It’s amazing how this farmworker can carry so many discarded maize canes on his back, just like an ant, carrying more weight than his own. Farming has to be among the most tough jobs anywhere, don’t you agree?
In Guatemala we recycle just about everything, including the maize canes which will probably end up as an organic wall. If you don’t believe me, come back tomorrow and I will show you a wall made with these maize canes.
By the way, I am assuming these sticks are called corn/maize canes; do you know what are they called in English?
