Guatemala - June 29th

Hi everyone! I am going to try my very best to blog once a week for the four weeks that I am here in Guatemala so that if you want to you can follow along on my adventure :)

This is my second full day here in Sumpango and it has been pretty stellar so far.  I am still adjusting to all of the crazy/cool sights and sounds around me as well as keep up with the rapid fire Spanish!

Not everything has been perfect though; I was pretty sick yesterday as the altitude (6000ft!) Seems to be hitting me pretty hard: P

But in spite of that I managed to get to take a trip to the market with Barb to get some supplies for an event this morning and meet most of the PILAS kids as many of them slept over last night :)

This morning was great as Gerry and Barb had a Sunday School Teacher appreciation event in their home.  I was able to help a bit with setting up and organizing the games, which was really fun, and the food at breakfast was great!  It was also really fun to meet and talk with everyone (a bit, I wasn’t kidding about having to catch up with my Spanish!) and see them enjoying themselves :)

Anyway, today is going to be pretty restful as the only other thing on the schedule is church this afternoon and then tomorrow I have my very first youth event!

And finally a bunch of pictures :)

Stay tuned next weekend for more adventures!

Random Links & Stuff (v.2)

Sorry I've been gone for so long!
But, I'm back now with  some more randomness from around the web :)

This totally cracked me up!  Right up there for 'important things to know' ;) 

My dad sent me this link the other day: How to Remember Literally Everything

Could you live in a house like this?  I think it looks like fun but I'm not sure if it would actually work for me :)

What does your coffee order say about you?

I really liked this post about being a twentysomething....

This post from a astronaut living on the space station right now (!!!) is pretty much totally cool :)

This is super cute... The last one is totally my favourite :)

Some cool ideas for if/when you have oodles of money/a really handy significant other: http://www.boredpanda.com/amazing-home-interior-design-ideas/  (Numbers 17 and 24 are totally my favourites :))

Inspirational penguin.  Need I say more?

And, finally, it may be a Bailey's commercial but I love the idea :)  (plus, if you're interested here's the making of)

Aaannnd, a cool picture of some boats/cute houses/awesome sky from my trip to Holland last summer :)
