An assortment of pictures:

This is the view on my new commute to's so peaceful to walk through the fields and enter the forest as the day begins.

Here we are at swear-in day (March 27).  Saying goodbye to Dona Maria and Don Enrique was not easy!
Our ceremony took place at the US ambassador's house in Guatemala City; my host parents were thrilled to not only be at his residence, but also take the following picture with him.

Here is our entire training group (16 sustainable community tourism volunteers and 16 healthy schools volunteers) along with our country director, Martha (on left).
Hanging out with Rachel in Antigua after the swear-in...unfortunately we won't be able to get together as often now that I'm moving away!
So as time flew by so fast, I didn't have time to finish my tejido myself; lucky my host mom Maria wove the birds and the patterns at the top.  It's now proudly hung on my wall!
