Guatemala Day Seven

Posted by on

Our final day in Guatemala started off with a trip to the water park. There, we met kids ages 14 to 22. Although we did not interact as much with the kids because they spent time with their own friends, it was still great learning a lot about the lives of teenagers in Guatemala. We swam for...

Guatemala Day Six

Posted by Connor Williams on

Today was pretty ebic. The first thing we did was consume breakfast, which was pancakes, eggs, hash browns, and frijoles. Then we went ziplining! The view from up high on the zipline was absolutely beautiful, and we had a lot of fun, even if some of us were a bit scared. After that wonderful...

Guatemala: Day Five

Posted by on

Today the group woke up ready to do Zumba with the moms of Creamos. We arrived at Creamos and basically walked right in and begun our workout. I’m going to admit, I was not expecting the Zumba to be SO intense. These moms were committed and it showed, they were so good at it, there were...

Today we were prepared to do Zumba with the moms of Creamos, but unfortunately the traffic into Guatemala City kept us from making it. So instead we went to a nearby coffee shop for the morning where we got to sit on a patio with a view of the surrounding volcanoes. I thought it was pretty great...

Guatemala Day Two

Posted by Jackie Blinn on

Today was our first day going to Safe Passage. I was super excited to meet the kids, but I was also a bit nervous to see how different their lives are. First, we went to watch a video about the founder of Safe Passage. That really stuck with me throughout the day because it showed me how Hanley...

Guatemala Day One

Posted by Katherine Bentley on

Day One in Guatemala and it has already been quite the experience. We got in late last night and I don’t think many people went to bed immediately, so everyone was tired. Breakfast was at 7:30 and many of us couldn’t be bothered to change beforehand. Breakfast was delicious with many...
