Day 2: Antigua/Vuelta Grande

Today, December 31st, 2014, we awoke at La Quinta for a breakfast around 8, some of the group went for as run around 6:30, while others went for coffee. Breakfast was at 8, a typical Guatemalan breakfast consisting of beans, eggs, and platanos. At 9 we all piled into the bus with all of our luggage. The bus was headed to drop off our belongings and meet our host families, you could tell everyone was eager. After going to each host families house for a quick meet and greet, we headed for Vuelta Grande. We got a quick tour of the school from Irven and then assessed our situation. Vuelta Grande is very high in the mountains and there are very beautiful and amazing views. We came back around 12:30 and had lunch with our host families. We then had a walking tour with them before meeting at La Union at 3. We had a meeting and decided groups for different projects and split into those groups for brainstorming ideas. We decided to go to the market and get some things we needed and then went back to our host families at around 6:30-7:00 for dinner. We met at La Quinta around 8:30 for the new years festivities and the night started with a bang, slowly moving to the whole city exploding at midnight.

    I “googled” Fridas in Antigua Guatemala, and found it celebrates the life of Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico’s most famous artists. The art inside the restaurant reflects her work, and you can see the photos online and read her bio Thanks for the interesting post, and it’s great that your project is off to a good start!
