A Travellerspoint blog

FOTOS!

Finally some pictures after some technical difficulties

So I made a very nice photo gallery for all to see... but cannot figure out how you can access it from the blog. So I´ve attached all the photos below. I hope you enjoy!

Here is some authentic straight from Trader Joes into your cup Shade Grown Organic Coffee! This coffee coop is about a quarter mile from our house. And this is Lucas, a coffee farmer and my tour guide.

Me and Rex... The rather aggressive to outsiders but nice after he (actually a she) gets to know you.

This is Ura... she belongs to the Spanish man Raul that lives in the room next to us.

Ben and Yasmina. A member of the family we live with.

Ben and Chello---one of the kids at the centro--working on a pinata for Dia De Los Ninos (a day where they have a big party for kids at each school)

This is the view from the road as you approach our town. The town is situated just underneath that mountain which is called La Nariz de Indio... or Indians Nose.

The central plaza in Xela. The second biggest city in Guatemala (about 200,000) and about 2 hours from where we live. A nice place!

A Super Chivos (Super Goats) game in Xela. They are a professional soccer team in the Guatemalan league, which is kind of like our minor league baseball here. Except the fans are WAY more dedicated and fanatical. We were also interviewed on the radio in Spanish before the game started... quite a stressful test for me!
