Man without head in the center of the picture!
More atention plaese!
Cows: they might be for sale. If they are for
sale, it would probably be for milk, probably not
for eating, although it's possible. However,
they are probably not for sale; I think they are
just grazing. Maybe someone who came to the market
brought them along; maybe this is just the place
where they usually graze.
Balancing act: carrying on head is very common.
Also note the rope around the head of the man
above her to the right. He is probably going to
use that to pull something heavy like a log.
People do that often, pull with their forehead
instead of their hands.
Hats: part of the traditional male outfit. Men
always wear them. Maybe because they're
working in the sun.
Cute little animals: The bunny is probably being
sold as a pet. Maybe to eat but that wouldn't
be so common. The dogs probably belong to the man.
Many people have dogs but they don't usually
buy them - they just find them or get one from a
neighbor's litter. People don't feed their
dogs. Dogs are expected to find their own food and
water, even if they are considered someone's
Netted!: The chickens are probably for eating,
maybe for laying eggs.
Colander cooking: It's true that indigenous
people would need to cook for a large crowd.
It's not unusual to have 12 children in a
Poles: one thing they might be for is building a
Pot?: Indigenous people carry things on their
heads all the time. Spanish-descended people
don't know how to do it.
Rice?: This is not rice. It looks like food for
Telephones: these are probably cellular phones.
They don't have land lines in this area so the
few people that have telephones use cell phones.
These look like the land line phones people use in
the U.S. but they really use the cellular network
- people don't care about portability.
Baby on mother's back: no, they don't
worry about the baby falling out - everyone
carries their baby this way.
Televisions and water: these are definitely
televisions for sale. People might ask a friend to
help carry them home or they might ask for a ride
from one of the few people with a car.
Cooking: the woman on the right is cooking
tortillas. I can't tell what the woman on the
left is cooking but it's probably some sort of
soup. You always have a tortilla with your food -
even if you don't use it for wrapping food you
just have one to eat. People coming to the market
would buy some to eat.
Soccer Goal: This market is probably a Sunday
market. The rest of the days people probably play
Colored ropes: people use them for making nets to
carry things, tying animals, etc. In this area,
they might use them to pull boats. People do use
ropes a lot but it is unusual to have this many
There are many questions about the colorful
clothing, headwraps, and baby slings. Some

Translation test: They are used for many things.
