November 29: indigenous culture day

It’s Thursday. The after school activity is a short ride outside Antigua to an indigenous artisan and culture center. We are introduced to the Mayan culture of Guatemala and witness how their textiles are made (the fabric given at weddings typically take 6 months to make!), how weddings typically work (with demonstrations!), how to make tortillas, what the typical food is (with samples of course), and how coffee is grounded. Muy interesante!!!
