1,000 Words – Life in Sumpango, Guatemala

A woman hard at work in a public laundry, called a pila — a common sight in Guatemala. What strikes you about this photo? What do you think it says about everyday life in Guatemala and elsewhere in Latin America?

  1. What a great photo! What strikes me about this photo is that it appears the woman is smiling, while obviously working hard. She is a multi-tasker. Nap time for baby does not mean down time for mom! And what a cute baby she is!
