Adventure over...or just beginning

We arrived home early Friday morning.  It was a long day, starting at 4am on Thursday (Guatemala time), leaving for the airport at 5am (what a hair-raising trip! and it was 1 1/2 hours. Thank you, Oscar, for your careful driving), and three planes.  Luckily two of those connections allowed us to stretch out in our rows and catnap.  We arrived a half hour early in Anchorage, 12:30am on Friday (3:30am Guatemala time).  Caroline has more photos to load, most on our last two visits to pueblos.  One of them received computers funded by Bowman Elementary School here in Anchorage.  It was such an honor to participate in the delivery and see the absolute excitement these items created.  I'll be looking forward to hearing how they are used.  Now that we are back, we realize how much more there is to do.  Already we have been talking with friends about the different experiences but also answering questions as to how others may be involved.  It'll be up to us to share our enthusiasm and spread the word that travel to Guatemala is a wonderful, enriching, positive, rewarding opportunity.

  1. I'd love to go one day - sadly, that stage of my life may be some years off, but some day . . .
    So great to see you both at the retreat.
