In 2014 I traveled to Guatemala, a country that captured my imagination more than 30 years ago, when I was first introduced to the Maya culture as a college student.

What I found was that the spirit of the Maya culture today still permeates Guatemalan society some 4000 years later. Color, design and traditional dress are visually understood with respect to the ancient civilization’s influence, but what is truly extraordinary are its people and the qualities they possess. Their rhythmic approach to everyday life, their humility and their extraordinary pride in themselves and their people are inspiring.
