Nuns by the Seaside



We went to this resort outside of Puerto Barrios for lunch last weekend. I have no idea who frequents the place. Puerto Barrios is hardly a tourist destination, and the resort is too expensive for the locals. Perhaps rich people from Guatemala City trying to escape the rat race.

Anyway, I like these pics I took of a bunch of nuns enjoying their afternoon. A pity that I missed the shot of the four of them snoring away in a row of hammocks. The setting does not seem to fit with chastity, obedience, and poverty...
