I didnt have my memory card with me the last time I wrote so here are a few photos from the past two weeks, mainly of the building etc.
This is the first house we built just before it was finished.
So last friday everyone looked far too clean. I got so involved with painting everyone that I didn't realise how red I was!!
This is the family that we built for and us. They were such a nice family!
This is Robin on the way home in the pick up truck. Sebastian painted him.. Red Robin
This is a picture of some of the traditional dress in Guatamala. The little girl is watching the waves in Monterrico.
This is the young girl and her baby at the new house we are making.
So for the past two days we have been working on the house. On tuesday night we went out for the birthday of another volunteer Mike and which was good fun. There was a lot of crazy dancing... We didn't stay out too late though.
James was pretty ill on wednesday morning, he hadn't been feeling too good for a while but we had been to an Indian Restaurant the night before and we think he had food poisoning as well. He's fine now though. Today we finished the second house that we had been working on, all that is left is to paint it tomorrow. We booked a trip to Tikal today. We have gone with a company called 'Onvisa' who are recomended in Lonely Planet and we paid 145 dollars for 2 bus tickets, a night in a hotel and a tour around Tikal which is pretty good!
