Mike and I explored the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula for 2 weeks of flyfishing (Mike), diving (Stacey), snorkeling, Maya ruins, a colonial city, cenotes, quite a few hammocks and lots of great food.

When Mike flew home I headed to San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas for 2 weeks of Spanish study with a small group in tow. We lived with host families and visited area sights including villages, museums, and ruins.

When the group flew home I bused to San Pedro La Laguna on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala for a week of planning for future growth of the Beca Project (link below) and meeting our sponsored kids and their families.

When our daughter Mariah and her husband Greg invited us to share a timeshare in Quintana Roo between Christmas and New Years, a new chapter to this blog was added. HAPPY TRAILS!

Random Shots

I decided to just post some random shots of the school and the town. This is Mynor and me taken by Maria Cecilia at her home on Wednesday.

Playing with Mynor's baby, Antonio, at his house on Thursday.

2 views toward the lake from high points in town.

The entry lane to the Cooperativa school.

Pretty colors at the school: a rainbow...

a lizard....

and a cactus fruit.

Some sort of solemn event by the municipal building this morning - saluting and singing - the national anthem, maybe?

A few street scenes: a chromed out chicken bus....

laundry day (note the sign) ....

Maria, the cinnamon roll and banana bread lady (she balances the bread pan on her head as she walks )....

and an old guy, Jose Navichoc, I talk to every time I pass his house; I enjoyed his company last year, too. He's really hard to understand - I think he's speaking more Tzutujil than Spanish to me. HAPPY TRAILS!
