    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 pet.

    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 family.

    Poles: one thing they might be for is building a fence.

    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 pigs.

    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 soccer here.

    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 rope vendors.

    There are many questions about the colorful clothing, headwraps, and baby slings. Some generation information about Guatemalan traditional dress can be found here: www.rutahsa.com/traje.html
