Caption:

Grizzled with age and weathered by the sun, this old man still cuts a dashing figure in the traditional garb of Petzal. The dark shawl, hand-woven red striped shirt and crimson sash tied around his head are unique to his village. Even with a hat, he squints to protect his eyes from the early morning sun.
