Top 3 List compiled by Melanie

Top 3 things the students know how to do...
1) EAT
2) SHOP (they´ve learned to ask good questions first though about who made the products)
3) DANCE!!! We took a salsa and merengue class this afternoon. I¨ll post pictures tomorrow. Every one of the students was great!

But aside from this, the delegates are also asking great questions about the political realities in Guatemala. Yesterday we were in the van discussing Fidel, Cuba and Puerto Rico´s independence movement. Impressive.

Tomorrow we are off to a coffee co-op to learn about fair trade coffee and visiting a memorial to a town that was massacred in the 1980s.

Thanks so all our fans who have been keeping up with our blog. Off to dinner...

Dance lessons! I can't wait.
When do you have time to write in your journals? No doubt, later, there will be entries from this trip you will want to go back to read again and again.
Melanie, the pictures tell us so much; the students look very happy, the patch of sky is so blue, the colors in the market are rich and varied. Thank you.

Hey LHS'ers! Sounds like you are having an absolutely fabulous time down there, learning a bunch and living it up. I'm here in rainy San Francisco getting...well, wetter and wetter. Started my cooking class today, which was a lot of fun, I'm looking forward to the rest of the week. I'm so excited for all of you to have this wonderful opportunity-- I hope you soak in every single minute!

Enjoy! Mr. Myers

I so enjoy reading these posts and I love the pictures! It's nostalgic for me to see pictures of Guatemala Manuel-style.
It makes me proud to hear about all the good you are doing and all the knowledge you are gaining to share with all of us!

PS. Good luck with Ms. Manuel - don't let her take you to dance classes just to show off her moves :)

Safe travels - Patty O
