On Tuesday evening, I returned from an eleven day trip to Guatemala. I went on a mission team and as no good deeds go unpunished, I came back with one heck of a congested head that has sapped my strength. Over all, it was a good trip. We started and ended in Antigua, which is a lovely old city. But we spent four nights in Jalapa, a town in the southeast of the country, from which we ran clinics in two smaller villages. When we returned to Antigua, the volcano that overlooks the city had become quite active, or at least it was sending up enough smoke to remind folks of its presence.
I loved the climate (we were mostly above 4000 feet). Nights were cool, days were warm. I also enjoyed the food--lots of vegetables and fruit, good meats, wonderful spices and sauces, and cold beer! Maybe I'll write more later (but I still have more to write about my summer trip to Scotland).
