They are still with us, communities in southern Mexico and Guatemala. For them 2012 is a boom without a boom. What a party they are anticipating on 21 December!(more)

Their homes have been built with the money they send weekly to their devoted wives and eager, growing children, who have worked hard to build their homes, and work their land to supply their food and economy.
