Arrival in Guatemala City

We have arrived in Guatemala City and the learning experience began immediately.  The boys now know all about immigration and custom procedures.  As soon as we exited we saw Mayan women with babies strapped on their back, children begging for money, and backpackers headed out to explore new lands.  Brenda, our coordinator for Spanish Academy Sevilla, was there waiting for us with a huge smile and 2 vans to transport us to Antigua.  What would normally be a 45 minute drive will be an hour and a half due to Catholic religion processions through the country.  Looks like the BEST boys will also learn about world religions first hand!  Full immersion programs are the BEST!! Teaching across the curriculum happens all day everyday, but it's all in ESPANOL!
