Guatemala Again!

I pack my stuff for Guatemala: work pants, work shirts, work shoes. I say ”Good bye” to Dad at airport. I fly in the airplane. I sleep on airplane. I woke up in Guatemala. I show passport.  And then I wait.  I go to the coffee shop from last year. Mom buys some coffee.  I wait for the bathroom.  I remember no toilet paper in the toilet.  I see old friends at the coffee shop.  I give pictures from last year.  I listen to Oula music at the coffee shop. I make new friends at the coffee shop.  I make and share pot holders again. I wait for Aunt Laura, Uncle Jonathan Schyler, Olivia and Bremen.  It is fun and I am tired.  I take a nap.

 

 

I ride the bus.  We drive through Guatemala City. I take a nap. I look out the window.  I see Guatemala again!  It is fun.  Bus gets to San Raymundo.  The bus takes us to Bomenera. I remember Bomenera from two years ago.  It is the same.  It is different. It is bigger and improved. I see Old friends. I see swimming pool. I see my friends, the cooks again!  I find my room. I unpack my stuff and get ready for Monday, cement day.  Aunt Laura has a meeting.  She tells all the rules for Guatemala:  NO toilet paper in the toilets. Hah! I know this rule!  Cooks make us delicious dinner. It is fun to be in Guatemala again. Uncle Jonathan has a meeting:  I am excited about cement day; I am scared that I will get sick.  I go to the bed.  I am tired—not much sleep on airplane.

 

 

Monday morning I get up early–6:00.  Breakfast is at 6:30 and on the bus by 7:00.  Well, a little bit late. They had to wait for me but I tried to be quick! We ride on bus. We go to a new family. We unload Brandon’s truck. I help carry tools. I am excited. I am looking for Heather and Brandon. We have circle-up with Heather and meet our family. We have a plan for the day: prepare foundation and then pour cement.  Uncle Jonathan wants to pour before lunch!  Wow! We have to work fast! I help with organize supplies and get ready for cement.
