Blog . Mid-Point Update from Student in Guatemala
The past weekend's cultural journey was a blast! On Saturday, we departed from Antigua by "chicken bus" at 2 pm, and at 6 pm arrived in San Pedro La Lugana, a small village southeast of our job site. The village sits on Lago de Atitlan and rests beneath the towering Volcano San Pedro. The 9,000 inhabitants of San Pedro are primarily Tz'utujil Maya! We found a hotel and grabbed dinner at "D'Noz," a restaurant overlooking the lake (and Indian Nose Mountain!). On Sunday morning, we went kayaking and got to swim in the beautiful clear water. At 2 pm, we departed at the dock by boat across the lake to Panajachel, a village with a great market. We returned to our base in Antigua by Sunday night, refreshed for the new work week.
The last two days of work on the construction site have gotten us closer to the families and masons - and closer to completion of a house. We just screwed the roof on today, and the floor is setting as you read this!
Thank you for keeping in touch with my trip and project!
