What do you like to document about your world? or city?
My plan has changes due to last minute cancelations - now my new subject will hopefully be a short expose of the life of a young Q'eqchi' man living in northern Guatemala. Q'eqchi' is one of 21 ancient languages still remaining from the time of the Mayan Empire. The man's name is Fernando Choc or "Chico" Choc as he is known to his friends. He is the only individual in his entire community who has received modern education. I hope to spend some time with him this day to document a typical day in his life.
