The trip so far has been filled with new experiences. Even though I´ve been in Guatemala for less than three full days, it feels like I´ve been here for a week. It´s been great fun sharing this trip with my friends who have made it even more enjoyable. So far we´ve hiked, swam, eaten new foods, learned about Guatemalan culture, and much more. The scenery here is breathtaking and the weather has been very nice. Later today I´ll be meeting my homestay family, and I´m both nervous and excited for the new experience. I´ll keep an optimistic mind and try to really get to know my homestay and learn from them.
