Street life in Chichicastenango

One day we decided to take a daytrip from Lago de Atitlán to the famous market in Chichicastenango, also simply called “Chichi”. Every Thursday and Sunday Maya people from the surrounding villages are putting up their market stalls in this picturesque little village almost 2000 m above sea-level. Colors, colors and more colors! I enjoyed it very much to just walk around and watch the chaos and the people.

When we drove back again I amused myself by photographing out of the car window…

  1. The colors are striking…they’re everywhere!

  2. absolutely wonderful photos Jenny! Love them!!

  3. I love the donkey with wheels, I want to give one to my nephews.

  4. I love these. It’s a trip down memory lane. I did a big trip through South and Central America a few years ago. It’s a magical place 🙂

    • Yeah, that is why I decided to return this year again. Small distances but so versatile enviroment. Japan is amazing too! Enjoy!

  5. Great essay. May I suggest that you might gather the photos into a gallery. The post then would not scroll down so long. It is a great series of photographs.

  6. Thank you Victor, I might consider galleries in the future. I tried it for my post “Cappadocia” but liked it more as I have done in previous posts 🙂
