Antigua Guatemala

To anyone who has been reading this blog, I apologize for the delay in posting. We’ve had more difficulty than I anticipated settling in. No one’s fault—just the way things turned out.

When we arrived in Antigua on Sunday night, we discovered that it happened to be the feast day of Antigua’s patron saint, St. Santiago. A happy coincidence as each town in Guatemala honors a patron saint one day a year. A platform was set up in front of the Cathedral–the main one, that everyone calls simply “the Cathedral”—and a phalanx of marimba players entertained the audience.  A wonderful introduction.

I’m here now with Olivia, using the computer at my favorite internet cafe, Conexion, the only place I’ve found that allows me to download photos. Good to be here, hoping to find our rhythm soon.

    Jessica, good to hear from you and Olivia, and thank you for posting that picture, it really helps imagine it all. Can’t wait for more blogs, when you are able to post again. Mateo gave a hug today at school, he is doing great!

    Just when I think I’ve got everything under control, life reminds me I have nothing under control! One day at a time. So glad to hear Mateo is doing great. Can’t believe how much I miss him, Olivia does too. Hugs to you and Alex. Thanks for writing.

    Sorry to hear you’re having trouble settling in…more orange chocolate bread maybe? A little more pollo comparo?

    TS, you know us so well! Orange chocolate bread and Pollo Campero always do the trick.
