In 1969, the Chichi market was largely contained within the central plaza, and the foreigner might wander about seeing only a handful of other tourists. But Chichi has been "discovered" and great numbers of tourists now visit, leading to expansion of the market into all the side streets for a block or so from the plaza.
a man from Nahualá, another Quiché-speaking town, but with different dress customs, wears a wool kilt, traditional to Nahualá, instead of pants. He has likely come to sell and to do some shopping before returning to his hometown.
