1/2 day of work and off to the ruins

Today the Guatemalan team finished their work at 12 and then had a great lunch cooked by Marcelina on the patio in back of the clinic.

They took a tour of the village to see some of the PID houses and then went to the Mayan Ruins of Tikal ik Ab Aj. This is one of my favorite places. The plants are so beautiful and it is peaceful. You feel like you are walking through and ancient Mayan village. We took 6 of the girls from the village so they could experience some of their history. It was a fun trip.

Afterwards Abby invited the team to her house for delicious dinner. Before we had dinner two of our team members did some singing with a history of the boat songs. It was a surprise to hear this beautiful music coming from two retired electrical engineers, who believe that you need to sing for your supper.

It was a great day for all.
