Yesterday the team finished up their work in the village. Cynthia had a party in the afternoon with the knitters celebrating all their accomplishments during these past two weeks. Judy continued counseling a few people and enjoyed a visit to the local health center with Alejandra. Jen and Meghan once again went with Julie to Desierto and got through three grades for heights, weights and hemoglobins. In they afternoon they had an educational class for our diabetic patients. They explained more about the disease and the treatment. James and Mackenzie finished painting the house in Desierto and got to paint the front of the house where they put in a floor earlier this week.
Today we headed to Antigua to spend the day enjoying the colonial city. We got to tour a chocolate factory and a jade factory. We learned that they best cocoa beans in all of Guatemala come from Suchitepequez (the department where PID is working). In the evening they left Antigua and headed for Guatemala City to stay overnight in a hostal for an early flight tomorrow morning.
This team was great to work with and had so much passion for the projects they were doing.
