|The little fire "Johnny Tiger" built us at on the Mayan Nose.|
As I walk around the office and people ask, "How was your trip?" I'm finding it hard to find the words to capture Guatemala. The easiest thing for me to tell people is this: "It was perfect. I wouldn't have changed a single thing." And truly, it was.
|Who's afraid of a big bad Mayan calendar?|
|Melanie, queen of dominos.|
|Domingo and Melida, our host father and mother|
|Stephanie dancing with one of our classmates!|
|Ardella, riding home from San Juan in a tuk tuk!|
|Adios, San Pedro!|
As we flew back last night, many of us were full of sadness about leaving Guatemala behind, but as we flew over the beautiful lights of Texas at night, we couldn't help but feel a little pride in our home country. We come back to the States full--of ambition, of stories, and tortillas. I hope from the bottom of my heart that we will continue this Guatemala winter term experience for many years to come--it's an experience that will open your eyes and fill you with love.
