We have all arrived in Guatemala, staying at the beautiful Earth Lodge near Antigua. We have been spending a lot of time getting to know each other, playing games, and learning more about the program. yesterday we went on a short hike and got to see an amazing view of the mountains and volcanos. Some of us got up early to see lava coming out of Fuego, one of the nearby volcanos. Today we have spent the afternoon in small groups doing a scavenger hunt around Antigua seeing loval landmarks and exploring the market. Tomorrow is Guatemalan independence day, so there are a lot of people out in the streets and we have seen a few parades. we are leaving antigua tomorrow for La Escuela De La Montaña for our first round of Spanish classes.
