Authentic Guatemalan Smiles and Tortillas, Three Times A Day

This portrait of a young Maya girl is another addition to the portraits of strangers series.

We are so fortunate to have freshly made tortillas three times a day, especially so when smiles are also available.

Well, for starters you need ‘real’ nixtamalized maize dough (nothing of the maseca flour used elsewhere). After that, you need a good pair of hands to tortear (hit into shape) a real looking tortilla. Okay, go ahead now and make your own Guatemalan tortillas! Easier said than done, certainly.
