Guatemala City, Guatemala
A Veritable Walking StoreIn Plaza Constitucional you'll find walking vendors from around the region selling uniquely crafted items. This lady traveled over 100 miles from her home village to stay with friends in the city and sell these goods. The combined weavings, embroideries, and hats were made by the women of her village. Of course, I bought a beautiful, colorful woven scarf. When in the square seek out these vendors, contrary to popular conception, they have traveled far and worked hard to get there.
