Who is the Real Miss 15 de Septiembre?




Guatemalan Independence day is celebrated on September 15th. Traditionally, the children from primary and secondary schools parade through the streets of every town.
Norma, our housekeeper and Acting-Mother to generations of MSF volunteers in Puerto Barrios, borrowed my camera to take pictures of her daughter Nancy in the parade. Nancy had to dance through the streets of Puerto Barrios for over three hours in this get-up in 100 degree 100% humidity Puerto Barrios weather. Child abuse.

Afterwards, Norma and Nancy thought it would be really funny if I tried on her outfit. The boots are to die for, no?

Uni High would have loved to have such a stylish cheerleader. Is it too late to go back ?
