October and November are the best months for sunrises on Lake Atitlan. I pulled myself out of bed at about 5:30 this morning to capture this one. It came after a day and night of non stop rain.
My lovely roommate and dear friend, Erin, and I are working on a short documentary about used huipiles. On Saturday, we interviewed an incredibly articulate and obliging anthropologist who has been studying the recent trend of indigenous women selling used huipiles due to dire economic circumstances in this beautiful 18th floor apartment in Guatemala City. More to come!
