Hasta la vista, PLQ

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:

The staff get the party going with classic Latino beats!

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!

Ned waxes lyrical

Putting my heart and soul into it. More than a bit scary!


Our friend and fellow graduee, April sings 'Love is born in April' (in Spanish) - lovely

Hasta la vista, PLQ!

    Wicked! Jealous. Moving house today, thinking about the last time we did it Ned! Extreme misc.

      Ah yes, the Extreme Miscellaneous Box, never in my life have I seen such a random collection of objects with indeterminable uses! Hope current move doesn’t require such desperate measures!
