Mayan fisherman on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Just another day at the office for this Mayan fisherman, plying his trade on
Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. The boatmen use one paddle (held vertically) to propel their round-bottomed canoes, while using the other hand to pay out and retrieve their net.
It takes an amazing amount of skill and balance to accomplish their task.
On the other hand, you can't beat the
wonderful view of the San Pedro volcano from the office window!!
