Wow. This experience was once-in-a-lifetime. I love it here in Xela, and I am so glad I chose this location and this Organization. The city is vibrant and its people are full of life. The work we got to do at the rehabilitation clinic was very worthwhile and the Spanish lessons were very helpful and fun. I would gladly recommend this program to anyone looking for A Broader View of the world around them.
I felt safe, cared for and respected in my host home. The meals were yummy and nutritious, and although I grew tired of beans, I accept that it is a standard food. I was caught off guard, at first by being told by my host mom that I was not in proper dress code for Guatemala, but I understand that it was for my safety.
