The clothes that the Maya wear are outstanding. Very bright and colorful. It’s pretty sturdy too. All of the cloth is made locally. The Maya are craftsmen and their crafts also involve making anything out of the wonderful cloth they make. Sometimes clothes. Sometimes pot holders. You name it.
I noticed a handy man at the hotel. He did gardening. He served us food. And then one time I saw him building the gorgeous furniture that was in every room of the hotel. I wish I was just a franction as self-sufficient.
