The first week in San Juan La Laguna has been amazing! Everyone here is so welcoming and incredibly kind! My host Mom and her family have been so accommodating, and it has been such a privilege learning about her life and beliefs! During the afternoons, I worked with local women at a natural medicine association, where I learned to make shampoo and soap using the locally grown plants. I loved hearing about the healing properties of different plants and flowers, and I now appreciate the time and energy that goes into making hand-made goods!
I am so excited for what lies ahead!
