Diet: Corn flour and beans
Economy: Subsistence Farming
(You eat what you grow)
|Typical home in the area. One
room, dirt floors, not running
water or sewers. Yet, they are
kept clean, and the dirt swept.
|Cooking is done over fires. Gathering
firewood is essential daily work.
|Papusas is the staple of the diet. Corn milled
into flour and made into a dough. Patted into
a flat round patty with a small amount of
beans added – then grilled in olive oil.
|Locals stop to greet the uncommon
passing of our vehicle to their village.
