For our activities

We were welcomed by the owners. We visited the farm and they

Barb’s First Team Day One

The toilette paper ends up in the garbage can instead of the toilette. We will have to get used to that. Septic systems are just not the same in Guatemala as in Canada. 2. The diesel aroma is all over the place, another smell to get use to. Often the old vehicles from more affluent countries come
