To my friends who are still in Guatemala...the re-introduction into life in the U.S. will be easy in some ways (like putting your head on your own pillow for a quiet night's sleep) and difficult in others (like finding yourself daydreaming, reflecting on your experiences which will seem somewhat like a dream). I'm realizing that there were definitely some things that will stick with me forever and I'd love to hear from you about what you'll remember forever. The top two images are seared in my mind...the day when we turned that last corner of our 3-hour drive and all gasped at once when we saw the crowd eagerly waiting for us. The bright colors and the bright smiles will be another long-lasting memory. Cortney and I look forward to gathering and sharing our students' perspectives on the trip and we'll do so in a variety of ways so thanks to all of you in advance!
