Blog: Fundacion Tradiciones Mayas (Maya Traditions)
Juan Pacach was nineteen years old when he found a piece of bone on a construction site in Santiago Atitlán. Without thinking much about it, he put it in his pocket and continued working. Days passed, and that small piece of bone kept appearing in his dreams. Once he even recalled the dresser where it was stored making a loud noise, only to find the bone, undisturbed. Weeks passed, and Juan finally...

Nutrition in Guatemala: Access vs. Resources

The country seems to have it all. This reminds me how the majority of issues in Guatemala can be due to lack of access, not necessarily resources.  For example, when I walk through the market, here in Solola, I am amazed at all of the fresh fruits, vegetables, meats,...
