Day 13: Saturday, August 11, 2012
Jenn and I hiked to the neighboring town this morning before returning to the hotel and then taking a boat back to Panajachel. We had lunch there and then we took a van back to Antigua for one last evening of exploration. We had a lovely last supper together as a group and everyone took flights back to the US on Sunday morning.
Jenn and I stayed in Antigua another day and hiked one of its volcanoes. That was a lot of fun. My two weeks in Guatemala on LHI’s teacher trip was quite the adventure. We got to know the people of Chajul quite well by the end of the trip, and we learned a lot about Guatemala and its beauty and struggles. I really enjoyed getting to know the staff at LHI and the other participants on the trip, and it was enriching to work closely with all of the students, teachers and other people of Chajul. I know I learned a lot from all of them, and I hope they learned something from me as well.
I highly recommend a trip with LHI as I can’t say enough about all of the good they are doing in an area of the world that lacks resources. If you would like to learn more about my trip, please inquire and I will get back to you.
