When we travel we often don’t understand what we’re seeing. I took this shot in the early 90s because I simply liked the landscape, and now I find out that the indigenous Mayans in Guatemala are suffering because their arable land has been stolen to produce sugar for foreign markets. Argh, the world is a mess.
