15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
a new experience

This summer I took a vacation to Guatemala. During my stay there I stayed in an area that was filled with poverity. But even though they had no money they still managed to live a happy life. It was an eye opening experiance. One day when I was sick I stayed in this room with concrete walls and pillows stuffed with old clothes. I viewed my surroundings and took this picture.
