This Q'eqchi man carries a load of firewood he has cut and bundled from Concepción Actelá to Santa Catalina de la Tinta in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. It's two hours walking very fast. With luck he'll get 20 Quetzales, that's $2.60 or £2.00. Then he'll walk home. He carries this very heavy load with a headband called a 'mecapal'.
