Beca folks around town April 10, 2013

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I really, truly love being in San Pedro La Laguna. It feels good to be there and to know so many people. It’s great to run into the Beca kids and their families around town; here are some photos of those moments and you can see a larger set of photos by clicking here.

There are lots of additional photos – pushing 800! – including images of my host family, market scenes, Semana Santa (Easter week) celebrations and more in the 14 sets in my Guatemala 2013 collection; check them out if you’re interested!
