Maybe you are anxiously checking your calendars for when we come back, or maybe you aren’t, but we have reached over halfway in the course which means we come back in 11 days. Here are a few things to know to prepare for our arrival
This trip has taught me so much about what it means to be Guatemalan. We have seen the power of communities in the face of immeasurable tragedy and heard stories straight from the survivors of the guerilla war. Conversely, by being in this foreign country, I have learned so much about what it means to be an American. Sure I miss American comforts, but now I question American norms. Why don’t we say hello to everyone we pass on the streets or invite strangers into our home to pick mangoes? Why does the US sponser dictators to undo democratic reform? I already know I want to bring bits of this vibrant culture back home.
PS. Happy late 4th of July
PSS. We are never eating Chiquita bananas again.
