The trip has flown by.  Long, packed days have passed one by one, melding into an aggregate whole.  We have covered much of this beautiful country – from the central highlands, where a small group was able to witness three inhumations, through the agricultural heartland that provides much of the world with bananas, coffee, rubber, and rice, to the Pacific.  We are now sitting on a volcanic beach, where we released sea turtles this morning.


The students have fully embraced the experience and many of their ideas and thoughts will fill this blog shortly.  For now, enjoy some more pictures!

    Did Colin fall into the volcano? I don’t see him anywhere.

    In the second photo on the top, what it appears to be, from what I know, some kind of shrine or place of worship. How are the traditional religions of the Mayan kept alive in a predominantly Catholic/Christian country?
