21st April: When we arrived in Xela and enrolled at PLQ we intended to stay for two weeks. Three weeks later we left the school with lots of new friends, a deeper understanding of Guatemalan history and culture, and – of course – better Spanish (we hope!)
Teachers, fellow students, the school staff and our host families made the experience a delightful one to look back on. Hopefully we´ll return one day, but in the meantime here are a few pics from our graduation party:
As our graduation party piece Ned and I recited a profound poem – composed ourselves of course. It was in the style of a limerick: four verses with classic Spanish rhymes such as escuela-abuela; nuevos-huevos; español-alcohol. Inspired!
Hasta la vista, PLQ!
