And then I realized the lack of pictures. . .
But here we go anyway!
First, the Phoenix airport! DUH.
Next. . . The plane!
|What am I looking at? . .|
Next. . . Customs in Guatemalan airport!
|Helping each other figure out the customs sheets|
On to the van we go! For a five hour drive! After 7 hours on a plane! KILL ME.
Made it to the hotel!
|Good lookin team!|
Obnoxious dog at the hotel. . . Trapped in an enclosure on the roof
|And man could he bark loud|
Off to eat!
And the city of Quetzaltenango
|AKA the city we stayed in|
The village we worked in
|Village kids playing soccer (futbol)|
|We were so high up, we were in the clouds! Literally.|
|The temporary shack church|
|Dr. Gomez speaking at church on Sunday|
|What the new church looked like when we arrived|
|The clouds are among us!|
We spent lots of time in the van
It rained. A LOT. And some days the van couldn't make it up the crazy mountain to the village we were working in. . . So we had to ride up in the beds of trucks. I actually enjoyed it :) At least until the temperature dropped significantly and it began to rain. Of course.
|A little chilly|
|Now a little warm|
|Just right. Happy camper.|
And the boots. Can't get enough of the boots.
|Arabian Knight? Or Ninja? Hmm. . . Definitely never saw him|
|Shopping! For food! In a Wal-Mart owned store!|
And now. . . Introducing my favorite place on this planet. . . ANTIGUA!!!!!!!!
|I adore horse-drawn carriages!|
|Beatifully artistic architecture|
|Hmm. . .|
|Main Street. El Guapo in the back.|
"The Handsome One" volcano
|So dang pretty|
|I love it here|
|Best coffee shop ever.|
|Coolest church ever.|
|Seriously. It doesn't get any better. I could call this place home!|
|One more shot of Main Street|
|We ate here one night. So good.|
|POPS. Ice cream! Best mint chocolate chip ice cream in the world.|
So those are the places I went on my trip! Antigua was seriously amazing. Everyone should go. Starbucks has a coffee plantation there! It's where they get their Antigua blend! MMM.
