Hi, my name is Neil Narayanan. I finished my freshman year at a high school called USN in Nashville Tennessee. I have been taking Spanish at my school for the past 3 years. I enjoy math, science, music and running. I love traveling and seeing new places. Previous to this trip, I went on a 2 week trip to Spain with my school we stayed with local host families. I also have done a lot of hiking in the past. I went on a 4-day hike on the Inka trail, but I have never done any heavy backpacking. I chose this Guatemala trip because I am interested in Spanish and the indigenous cultures Guatemala has to offer. I am excited to explore Guatemala with everyone.
