Buenos dias! It's been an exciting and busy three days! We wanted to share what we've experienced so far on our trip.
The flights to Guatemala were easy and fairly quick. We took vans to the place where we're staying. We were greeted with a delicious homemade Guatemalan meal and loved every bite. Our houses are all open air with a courtyard in the middle. One of them even has a rooftop porch that we have spent a lot of time on. We took a walking tour and saw where we will be working for the next week.
Some of us went to Spanish language school and some went to Las Obras, the hospital where we will be spending most of our clinic time. We worked with pediatrics, young adults, and older adults. We learned a lot in Spanish school, whether we were complete beginners or more advanced. Stephanie gave us a presentation on care for pregnant women from prenatal to post-partum and did a fantastic job! We ended our night with an amazing organic meal at Sabe Rico.
Until next time,
