Blog . Student's First Day in Guatemala
Hi, everyone. Max Beers, here, from Guatemala.
It has been a long day, with two flights - one to Atlanta, Georgia and the second to Guatemala City. The ride from the Guatemala City airport to my "home-stay" in Antigua consisted of few speed limit signs and countless motorcycles, huge mountains, and winding roads. Meeting my home-stay mother, AnaBella, was a warm welcome.
Also a walking tour of Antigua from Logan, the volunteer coordinator and our primary liaison from Constru Casa, and with my Kent State colleague, Dustan, wrapped up the day nicely. Tucked away at the bottom of one of many foothills is the beautiful town of Antigua (my "home base" in Guatemala, from which we will travel to the construction site each day). It is packed in a tight area, with around 40,000 people. The atmosphere is full of culturally rich people and historical architecture, which makes it a beautiful city.
Okay, off to bed. Work starts first thing in the morning, beginning with a 45-minute drive to the job site in the small mountain village of San Miguel Dueñas, at the base of Junajpu Volcano!
