Yay, an everyday post! Yesterday I had the day off, and went to Antigua with several other people.
I love going to Antigua, seeing the volcanoes, valleys, the city and all the artistic-ness that is expressed all over the city. But also being in traffic, seeing people go about their day to day lives and watching the culture.
And getting to go shopping in the market, and when you go back and you and the shop keeper remember each other and have a cool conversation.
This is such a cool look out to the volcano ‘Agua’. (and for your info, after that wall, it doesn’t just drop down lol)
For breakfast we took a shuttle up the mountain to El Tenedor, which is a restaurant up in the mountains, and we got to eat outside with this view.
The food here is so good. There will be random times when I miss the food I used to eat in America. But it’s pretty rare.
And one of my favorite parts! They make you an omelet to how you like it right there in front of you. I was so excited to have cebolla, queso blanco, tomate Y jamon on mine! (onion, white cheese(mozz.) tomato and ham.) Drizzled with cream. Think Creme fresh only 100 times better!
Another view from the restaurant. And it wasn’t just a restaurant, but these huge gardens and so much art weaved into it. It was so refreshing to just walk around with no real agenda, and enjoy nature and fresh air! It’s a lot of diesel smell and fumes in the city.
Jill is such an amazing person and friend. She pours out so much into so many lives in such a loving and fresh way! Love her so much!
Part of the group of sweet people!
A small part of the market.
You walk by and they ask what your looking for and if you even start to look at something, they get it out and all the other colors they have, or they put it on you to see how you like it haha!
Then they took us to see the mimo. That was fun to see.
And at McDonalds, I found a friend! lol
Going back home. (well, my second home!) It was so special to get to see the sunset. It’s one of my favorite things to watch but I usually am inside when it sets, and being in the mountains with a bunch of trees makes it hard to see it.
And seeing this, Psalms 1oo:5 comes to mind…
Porque Jehová es bueno: para siempre es su misericordia, Y su verdad por todas las generaciones.
Because the Eternal is good,
His loyal love and mercy will never end,
and His truth will last throughout all generations.

I’m so glad you are enjoying Guatemala, and especially Antiqua. We were there 2 years ago and enjoyed it very much. We were there with Cooperative for Education to deliver books and computer equipment to villages in the mountains.
Gorgeous pictures! Thank you for telling us about your day! Glad to see you’re feeling better.
So glad to see that you are enjoying the beauty and culture of Guatemala along with the people. It is important to take a day-off and to have the full experience!
