Praying to his gods

Still survive in the yucatán peninsula descendants of the ancient Mayans, very old people who still speak the Mayan language and continue in the best possible way with their rituals and millenary traditions. One of those traditions is to pray to the gods for good harvests and health. This villager authorized me to take some pictures during this rite.
