Beca Family Visits – Spring 2015 May 19, 2015

My husband Mike and I spent 3 wonderful weeks in Guatemala in March and April to celebrate Semana Santa in San Pedrano fashion, study Spanish at the Cooperativa Spanish School, further explore the area on foot and in kayaks, settle in to Ti Wachooch, our little home away from home there, spend time with our friends Mynor and Josefa and their boys, and visit with the families of this year’s new Beca Project students. Success on all counts!

I’ve selected 7 family visit photos to post here followed by 4 random shots of Beca students around town and on the job; you can view a set of more than 100 Beca photos on my Flickr site by clicking HERE.
