Believe it or not, La Antigua Guatemala is NOT the REAL Guatemala.
Well, let me rephrase that, downtown Antigua Guatemala is not the real Guatemala because the minute you step in any of the villages around our beloved colonial town, you are in the REAL Guatemala.
Today we continue our series of street portraits with the faces of the hard-working Guatemalan women who get earlier than anybody else in the home and they are usually the last to go sleep once everything is clean at the end of the day. Many of them, might have a job, the second and only paid job that is, because keeping everything running smooth at home is the real job. I take my hat off for these hard-working women the world over!
