Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Doing laundry at the public washbasins of Tanque de La Unión

Years ago the Pilas de Santa Clara used to be a very busy place with Maya women doing laundry. Most women came from the town of Santa María de Jesús because the water distribution there was inadequate. Nowadays, only a few people use the the washbasins to do laundry, most people come here to take pictures and other things. Pilas de Santa Clara or Tanque de La Unión as it is better known, is also the lovers hot spot in the afternoons.
