The group made it with minor problems – only a short delay in Texas, aka the State the Eats our Visitors for Nights at a Time (my brother and sister in law were trapped on the way to and from Guatemala, so we’re thankful the group had no issues).
We came straight to our home where we had a welcome meeting – Joel explained a bit of CMT Guatemala’s work (website is in Spanish and under construction but the video on it is in English and gives great context for CMT’s work in Guate) and what we’ll be doing this week – and, we ate dinner. Afterward, we got them settled in at “home” for the week and left them to rest up before the first work day.
Now, for a bit of “that’s my kid” trivia…
-This kid nearly gave his/her camera to a stranger at the airport who kindly offered to take a picture.
-This kid volunteered to taste test the super spicy cobanero sauce even though he/she has no heat tolerance (and proceeded to nearly cry as a result of the choice).
