San Antonio Palopo - photos from Kathy Coster

These photos sent by Kathy tell a lovely story. The little village of San Antonio Palopo is looking very tidy and lush. The kites are flown on the Day of the Dead - November 1. Click on the images to enlarge.

  Brenda is honoring her grandfather at the cemetery.

          Decorating the graves

      Pamela entertaining some friends - Elmer and Selvin

        Another beautiful kite - power outages are a given!
      Making tortillas in the casita kitchen. Petrona is in the centre.

         The ancianas enjoy a healthy lunch
          Finishing a traditional Pepian meal
 Beading workshop. The beading, which is the length of the board, is sewn onto a woven belt or faja.
