CELC Visit with Mayan Community at San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala

Dear friend,
Today was a wet adventure! You name it, we had it : panic attack, check; people getting eaten by dogs; broken wrist, check and check! Life will never be the same. Earlier we had gotten on the back of a pick-up truck in a rainstorm. The ride was a wet one. Life shall never be the same. This day will be the story I will never be quiet about. I hope you should never have an experience like this. But then again, it was just a normal day at CELC.
Love always,
— journal entry by Sophie, international traveler and CELC student

News of the Week

Reflections in Guatemala with CELC Middle School Students

Basking in the rising sun,
assessing the damage of midnight flood,
Walking through the soaking walk
listening to my cohorts talk,
Sue and Sophie deep in slumber
despite last night’s rolling thunder.
The smell of beans and peppered eggs,
seem to call to Philip’s legs,
Rolling in with his son,
he eats his food until he’s done.
Our friends gather round
and we begin to get loud,
We listen to Billy explain our fate
as Astrid translates.
We will go to a park,
and start to STOMP
and then make tarjetas to our heart’s content,
Then play fútbol,
until we’re spent,
we take our showers
and hop into bed,
my eyes begin to feel like lead.
