Caption:

Most communities have a water source and a covered washing area in the center of town. Women gather to do laundry on the cement washboards or to clean produce purchased at the market. Here a woman rinses a bucket of corn kernels that have been re-hydrated in preparation for making chicha (an alcoholic beverage) for the town's annual festival.
