Hey everyone! Week 1 in Guatemala was such a wonderful experience. We hiked a mountain at sunrise, met many locals, played soccer with some schooolchildren, carried water up and down a hill, and worked my mucles to the max. We’ve been doing a lot of good work here and learning how to live as the locals do here.
The lake is absolutely stunning. I think it might just be one of my favorite things about this place, just how expansive and constant the lake is in the lives of everyone here. It rains every day, but we are thankful for it because it keeps us cool.
We’ve been doing a lot of humbling work but it’s more rewarding than a lot of the schoolwork or chores I do at home. Every story I’ve heard from people here has amazed and inspired me and I’m really excited to learn more in this next week.
