Guatemala Photo of the Day – The Garden Below

Along the dirt road between our house and German’s house, we passed a large garden below the road.  The garden was well-organized and well maintained.  It made my garden at home look like a small weed collection.  Every once in a while as we walked along this path, we saw a few women tending to the field.

Americans have an impression that people in Guatemala are lazy.  I generally didn’t see this in my Guatemala experiences.  Many of the people in Xenacoj work very hard.  The garden below represented a lot of hard work, a heavenly provision, and a hope for the future.
