Mayan Sisters

I traveled to Panajachel, a town on Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands. The scattered Mayan villages surrounding the lake have a very mystical vibe when the mist rises in the morning. While I was staying in San Pedro, the steep main strip of the village was hosting their annual carnival. Quiche Mayan children were running around with fruit on sticks and jumping on the rickety metal rides that would never have passed North American safety regulations! I saw these two girls holding hands staring at the ferris wheel to their left and snapped the photo.
