June 7, 2012

I'm a neophyte at this blogging stuff.  Here goes more "practica."

Although I'm thoroughly enjoying both my private and volunteer time here in this beautiful little country, I'm developing some strong opinions regarding the whole issue of 'helping' others who are 'less fortunate' than ourselves.  It's been interesting and eye-opening for me to really delve into the culture here; one that we would mainly define as poor, substandard, uneducated, unhealthy.  Like the historical empires of the world in World History, the United States "helps" all the rest of the world in times of need [as we define it].

April 17, 2013 - Well I've finally started blogging in earnest - someday I'll come back here and tell the story of my wonderful time in Antigua, Guatemala.....
