Bread Ovens and Music Guatemala

Two wood-fired bread ovens, designed by Pat Manley and made for the humanitarian organization Safe Passage

Truly a remarkable country. Check out the street musicians.

Just returned from Guatemala where a group of us constructed energy efficient wood-burning stoves for Maya families.
The bread of choice in Guatemala is still tortillas, and the Maya women can make them with their eyes closed. I tried to make tortillas, but I kept my eyes open, and everyone had a good laugh.

Joe Godfrey inspects an oven that he and Pat Manley recently built in Guatemala. Maya workers expertly face the oven with stone.

Bake oven fired up for the first time on the edge of Lake Atitlan. Sorry you missed it, but it was a great pizza party.
