MARCH 3, 2017 | CENTRAL AMERICA - MAYA
We arrived in Xela after a 5 hour bus ride from Guatemala City on Friday. A couple hours into the trip we stopped for some food but other than that it was a looong bus ride. This is our first week with home-stays and we've been using what we learned from G22 and to be environmentally responsible. This whole week went by like a blur, we've been taking 5 hour long Spanish classes everyday at PLQ. A few of us went on some activities in the morning like medicinal baths in the city of Almolonga and to visit a skeleton that represents the patron saint of death, Saint Pascualito. Tomorrow, we´re hopefully going to have a family dinner (this is going to be our 3rd attempt) and this weekend were off to the Mountain School, the sister school of the school we´re at right now!
