Things I liked about being home:
- Family and Friends minutes away
- Hot showers with ridiculous preasure.
- Throwing TP in the toilet.
- An unendless beer selection
- Options in general.
Transitioning back into Guate life was pretty easy. No freak outs like when I first got here.
Work-wise: The coop received an Eco-Tourism volunteer to develop the tea tour. So, I have a new sitemate. He gets up here next week. Its tough getting back into work once you've been gone for a while. So, with my trip home, semana santa, and a PC conference at the begining of April, it'll be tough getting things done this month. However, I did order shirts for the coop, and film and edit a promo movie, which is below.
Semana santa (holy week) was last week. Across guatemala, people carry floats of Jesus and Mary through their towns. PC gave us vacation days from Thursday-Sunday, so I took advantage of the time to visit volunteers in Alta Verapaz. One of the towns I visited, Salaquim, was a town two hours off off the paved road to Chisec. The town was pretty basic. We played basketball on hoops that reminded me of the Kevin Bacon movie, The Air Up There.
In general, things are awesome down here. Life is pretty relaxing most of the time, its simple. Life with the fat cut off.
