The Mayan Kitchen

One of the most beautiful experiences that I have had here in Guatemala has been connecting with and getting to know the Mayan people here. In general they are shy and reserved, but when you get them to open up to you it's like a treasure chest full of stories, perspective, and an insight into an ancient community and culture. To be able to do that while cooking in their kitchen and dining at their table is the greatest gift of all.
