village life

The Yucatan’s villages are impoverished, but lively, and the inhabitants some of the friendliest and most generous people I have come across in a nation of friendly and generous people.

A woman cooks hand made tortillas, to accompany poc chuc (grilled pork), over a wood fired griddle in the heat of an already searing afternoon.

An underground cenote is the village swimming pool which provides a welcome respite from the afternoon sun.

The annual village fair revolves around a rodeo - I wait for an hour or two peering through a gap in the scaffolding but leave at sunset before the action starts.

The structure which seats the assembled population of the village is held together with twine.
