As the sun rises over Lake Atitlan we embark on yet another chapter in our Guate Fall Semester. We’ve waved our hasta luegos to our homestay families and friends and find ourselves heading towards Achi territories in Rabinal, Baja Verapaz.
Our team is stronger and much more fluent in spanish and cultural awareness than ever as we dive into a chapter that is likely filled with stories of community resistance and resilience. All 14 of us are healthy and in high spirits, sending out love to all those who can only be here in spirit.
By this afternoon we will be gathered with our friends in Qachuu Aloom, who since the year 2000 have been strengthening and supporting local knowledge and conservation of native organic seeds.
Stay tuned for further updates on life and adventure from the cradle of the Mayan world.
