Blog Update – September 30, 2018

Early this morning we toured around the town of Antigua taking in some of the local culture. We then left the Hotel for the day. Our first stop of the day was at Valhalla, a macadamia farm, where we were given a tour of the farm by Tony, a very friendly and funny local. After the tour we got to sample some of the delicious products grown, manufactured, and sold at the farm. After the tour and the samples we sat and chatted as a group and enjoyed

Our last couple of days here in Guatemala have flown by!  Yesterday, we spent the entire day finishing up our work around the property.  It was a long, hot day, but we feel as if we’ve accomplished so much!  We wish we had time to finish all of the projects we’ve been working on and we are thankful that the Loving Arms staff taught us so much as they allowed us to help them.  We were all so tired last night that we barely made it through
