It’s been a great, relaxing two weeks – a big contrast from the long, hardworking weeks of summer, that kicked off as soon as I arrived in country a few months ago. Here’s a quick update of what I’ve been up to:
I guess you could say my vacation started even before the SECorps programs completely wrapped up, with a quick day trip to Monterrico with my co-workers and our G4 students. Monterrico is a small beach town on Guatemala’s pacific coast, just a few hours away from Antigua, known for its black volcanic sand, endangered sea turtles, and rough, warm waves. It was a perfect way to wrap up the summer – swimming in the waves, lying on the sand, and enjoying some delicious micheladas (a very popular Guatemalan drink, made of tomato juice, spices, and beer – sort of like a Guatemalan bloody mary) and super fresh ceviche.
