Caption:

This woman will do a brisk business selling these beautiful green bundles. Inside each is nothing more than a dozen leaves. Although cheap and plentiful, they are prized as wrappers for making tamales. They will be filled with meat or vegetable stuffed masa (dough) and then wrapped, tied and steamed.
