So, now that I’m home and in school full-time, and writing part-time, and generally just working way too much, I realize that I haven’t posted much about my experiences in Guatemala this past summer.  It’s time to change that.  I’m going to try to post a good review of the program and NGO I worked with soon.  But, for now, I’ll post a few pictures to hold you over.
