Women Washing Clothes, San Lucas Toliman, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, Central America by Sergio Pitamitz
The day begins at your hotel where you depart for the east end of the lake. Just past Panajachel is the village of Santa Catarina. It is a small village that is easy to explore in less than one hour. There are several womans weaving cooperatives where you can see the beautiful textiles being made into table coverings, clothing, and bed covers. The colors used on this side of the lake are bright vibrant blues, purples, and reds, woven into elaborate and beautiful designs.
