Guatemala Day 3

These students may be professional world travelers. After we woke-up and ate an amazing breakfast, we all went to the market!

The market had, what seemed to be, thousands of vendors and millions of people. It was very fast-paced, and it was extremely crowded. The students had a blast, and everyone left with something!

After our market experience, we all went to a local’s house to eat lunch. Deisy would be our cook for our time in Joyabaj. She was a fantastic cook who prepared some authentic Guatemalan food for us. We were very proud of the students as they expressed great gratitude towards our host, and they really stepped out of their comfort zones to try some unfamiliar foods.

Once we finished our amazing lunch, the students were given the choice to either attend a religious ceremony in Joyabaj or take an afternoon siesta! Those who chose the siesta enjoyed a nice afternoon swim and nap while the others witnessed first-hand how religion plays a prominent role in Guatemalan culture.

After the siesta and the ceremony ended, we all sat around and chatted for a while until it was time to eat dinner! Once it was time for dinner, we went back to Deisy’s and ate until we could eat no more. We all loved going to Deisy’s.

The students are really enjoying Guatemalan culture. A bunch of the students have said that they love talking to the locals (they only speak Spanish)! Everyone is so kind, and it seems that each student is learning more and more each day!
