Spanish School

Tropical gardens flooded all of the school grounds!
Keepin up with classes back home
and lots of new classes
taking walks every afternoon was one of the highlight for our trip
every day at noon we would pick up homemade tortillas from a woman who lived next to the school
The Spanish school was located in Antigua, one of the tourist capitals on Guatemala. We spent a week and a half studying Spanish in this beautiful oasis.

We're Back! (from Guatemala)

We got back to Holland late Monday night. Our trip was good except for a few miner glitches (lost luggage, getting sick). But, we did enjoy the warm weather and sunshine greatly! Unfortunately, due to bad internet coverage I was unable to keep our blog updated. So…I am planning on uploading groups of pictures from our trip over the next week or so!

This carpet is actually made out of painted sawdust!

These pictures our from the hotel that we stayed in while in Guatemala City ( the capital of GA)

The pool
And dinner was about all we had energy for on our first night in Guatemala.

We're Back!

We just got back from a great trip to Ft. Meyers Florida. We started the trip serving at a global farm called ECHO. Then moved on to a resort on Sanibel Island. Where we enjoyed great food, great people and great traditions!!!
