Hard At Work

Hard At Work 1 by Luna McCarthy

Many of the Spanish schools in Xela take day trips to local villages and if you are one of the fortunate students, you will go to nearby Salcaja to see local weavers produce the beautiful textiles that you see many of the indigenous women wearing. I believe this particular man mentioned that he had been weaving all his life, almost 35 years, for 10-12 hours a day. And you thought your work day was rough!
