The presence of these chorros; that’s what water faucets are called in Guatemala, is a sure sign that there are still houses in the villages without piped water service. Grifos is, by the way, the proper Spanish word for faucet. Llave, key, is another common word used, but in Guatemala most people understand chorro (stream or jet-stream) best.
