The🔸EMILIA DAY BAG🔸This beauty is pretty special because it features a custom made handwoven textile created by a women's weaving cooperative in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala 🌺 It is one of its kind and made from strong full grain leather. I'm also wearing my new @modandjo earrings thanks to our friends at @luna_mesa_store 🙌🏾
Day 6 was spent with my head hanging out the window of a chicken bus not sure if I was going to vomit or...well you know. I had obviously eaten something rough the night before and when I saw the 'Xelapan' sign I knew we were close. Some of the roughest hours I have had since Madagascar haha! This photo is from our arrival back in Xela with the Volcan Santa María in the background.
Day 5 gave us a fair bit of time to hang out in Todos Santos. Todos Santos is famous because it's a town where all men, young and old wear the traditional clothing as a point of pride. We learned about the significance of this and how it relates to the civil war and the systematic eradication of the indigenous people of Guatemala over land rights. The highlight of the trip was when six of us gringos walked into a barbershop to buy a frozen chocolate covered banana and ended up watching half of the film 'The Terminator' while the barber continued to cut his clients' hair. I don't actually have any photos from Todos Santos for some reason but here is a sunset from earlier on the trip ✌🏻
