BBQs in Guatemala

The first BBQ of the dry season went off with a storm last night in Guatemala!! After five months of the rainy season which ended in nine days of solid rain we finally have blue skies above us!! Which can only mean one thing...staff and volunteer Friday night BBQs!!!! With lots of food and beer and the welcome return of The Manteca we welcomed in the dry season! And of course we said a few sad goodbyes. A big thank you goes to Caroline and Kim for all their work in Santa Maria. And of course to Elaine Tesalona who had been a coordinator with us for six months in Santa Maria - she did an amazing job and will be missed! Thanks for a great night everyone (and for all the dancing!!!).
