Getting Back into Gear

This past week was pretty busy, planning for the arrival of summer interns, finishing up the quarter, and preparing for our programs. Our first group of summer interns arrives on May 11th, only a few short weeks away. Julie and I are hard at work planning for their arrival--creating budgets, arranging transportation, etc. We are also in the process of developing a few short-term pilot programs that the interns will be able to help out with.

This weekend we had our final team-building retreat of our year here in Guatemala. We stayed at Isla Verde, one of the hotels on Lake Atitlan near Santa Cruz. It was so pretty and relaxing, and the food was delicious! Too bad it was cloudy the whole time we were there (the rainy season is fast approaching). 
Romantic dinner by candlelight!
We have a very busy week ahead: lots of summer planning, community meetings, English classes, and a short trip to Xela on Friday to meet with a local organization, Primeros Pasos!
