I have been in Guatemala for 5 days now. We first arrived at the Aurora airport on Friday afternoon and were wisked away by Wendy Wever. Wendy is a nationally certified bilingual teacher who worked in both New Orleans and Austin for several years. She is now working in Antigua Guatemala assisting ex-pats assimilate and find volunteer work in the community. <br>I am accompanied by my daughter, Kaya and my step mother Wendy. This is the first time Wendy has traveled to Guatemala and the second time Kaya has been here. They are both studying Spanish at Casa Xelaju and weaving with the Mayan women of La Trampa while I work with the children of La Pedrera. <br>After spending the weekend in Antigua with Wendy Wever in Antigua and getting acclimated to the culture and climate, we have successfully completed our second day at the school in Xela and I have completed the first day at La Pedrera. <br>We will be attending a demonstration and social justice event on Thursday night. We will keep you posted.
