The native Mayans are typically a bit vertically challenged...and when standing next to very tall Americans Sarah Simmler and Brandon Alexander, it becomes a very stark difference! The stairs are smaller, the doorways are smaller and - on a serious note - because they are so much smaller, we also have to watch dosaging of our medicines.
We couldn't resist taking a picture of this one. Most carry baskets on their heads - with laundry or food or yummy tortillas to sell on the street. This woman definitely had balancing skills...but you also can see why we provide so many joint injections!
This photo makes me happy...it was taken on our trip to the school where they showered us in confetti.
The Tazmanian Devil was a very appropriate symbol for our crazy bus rides!
