I got in a minivan and fully expected to make it to Chichi but after 3 blocks, I had to jump off, walk a couple of blocks and then take a tuk tuk up to the hotel. The road was blocked off due to a parade that would start soon.
It is nice out patriotic most Guatemalans are. Many still remember and talk about the civil war that spanned from 1960 to 1996. They do not take for granted their independence which was declared in 1821 from Spain.
Linda and Sandra will be leaving at 0630 in the morning for Guatemala City. They will have the day to rest there and then fly back to The States on Tuesday. It was good to have them come and visit and to see the work here in The Highlands. We pray for their safe travel and look forward to their next visit.............which will be in Febuary for plastic surgery :)
