Chichicastenango Market Day Photos, Guatemala

Market Day in Chichicastenango, Guatemala.

Here are more photos of the Catholic Church built on the holy Mayan land. There are Mayans and Guatemalans relaxing on the stairs leading to the church.

A Mayan street vendor is trying to balance all of her merchandise on her head and in her arms as she sells them on the street in the market.

Here is a photo of a mayan family walking down the street on market day. The little girl is selling beaded necklaces and head bands.

Photo of a Mayan lady with her baby

Photo of a Mayan woman selling oranges and corn in the Chichicastenango Market, Guatemala.

I don't know who these people are supposed to be, but they look like KKK members in their hooded caps....I don't think there is a KKK in Guatemala though.

Whoops, camera got a photo of this lady's butt

Little old lady carrying a papoose through the market.

Photo of mayan baby clothes sold in the market

Another photo of the church. You can see there are mayans burning incense offerings, and lots of flowers.
