Arrival in Guatemala!

Buenos Noches St. Louis friends and family!
We have finally reached our destination here in Guatemala! Everything was smooth sailing all day! Both of our flights were on time and we had great, sunny weather when we arrived for the 3 hour bus ride. We had a welcoming dinner hosted by Sharon and Dwight and their staff from Mayan Families Organization. It was absolutely delicious and they introduced us to yummy new drinks made out of hibiscus flowers! Their home made tortillas and guacamole was to die for. We can all get used to the food here quick! Tomorrow is our first day of work! Two of us will be heading to the pre-school with Mrs. Richards in San Antonio while the rest of the group hikes up huge mountains to begin installing stoves. The plan is to get 8 done tomorrow! As you can imagine we are all exhausted from all the traveling and will hopefully be heading to bed early! Of course we miss you all to a great extent, but we are having a blast! See ya in a week!

Over and out,
Guatemala Blogger, Kaitlyn Holbrook
