Hello one and all
Just a quick update. Just starting our last week in Antigua before we head for a few days in El Salvador. We are going up to the school in Itzapa every afternoon this week which we are realyl excited about. It´s been a while since we have last seen the kids.
Last week was eventful, being Independence day for Guatemala, and proved to be quite tiring, as we were lucky enough to join the Santa Maria school and volunteers on their annual Antorcha run. The Antorcha happens a few days before independence day and involves people from outlying communities lighting a torch in the center of town and then running with it all the way to where they live or were born. No matter how steep the hill is to get there. The torch is heavier than it looks!!!!
Enjoy the pics
