Guatemala: Train Musem

This happened Sunday, but I want more pictures before moving forward. We went to a train museum. Our idea of a museum and theirs is a little different. I’m pretty sure their train museum would be our train graveyard. I’m not sure if this… Continue Reading “Guatemala: Train Musem”

Guatemala: Church and School

We went to church in Zacapa. It’s a beautiful structure. It has a courtyard. And barbed wire. If that isn’t safety, what is. Last year we didn’t get to church because of a flight delay. Today I sat there, admiring the relaxed nature of… Continue Reading “Guatemala: Church and School”

Guatemala: Aftermath

I’ll be going through the day to day, but I want to get the picture first. The trip was pretty life altering, as has been the past few weeks, which is good. I think I’m getting back on track to where I was. During… Continue Reading “Guatemala: Aftermath”
