Making Tamales
Mrs. Vasquez making her tamales in Dangriga, Stann Creek, Belize. A friend and I did a story on her and went to spend an evening with her doing this shoot as she took us from beginning to end of the tamales making process. Better than the photos we got were the delicious, signature, much sought after tamales from Mrs. Vasquez.

During the shoot, I had to hold my breathe to avoid inhaling too much smoke or step back because of the steam. Mrs. Vasquez only laughed at me and commented on ôkids today. As you can see in the photo.. she simply opened the steaming pot and handled the steaming hot tamales with no problem.
