As I write these words, I am waiting for the last of my laundry to dry so that I can finish packing my bags and head to the airport.
I am heading to El Salvador for my third go-round with the Keene High School Interact Club as they work side by side with residents of the small Salvadorian town of Talnique to move toward their goal of building 100 homes in a ten year period. I am honored to have been invited once again to capture the story of the students, the residents, the town, and a small bit of a country that has shown me nothing but generosity and kindness as well as stunning beauty on my past trips.
I ask that you bear with me over these next weeks as I travel first to El Salvador and then on to Belize…I have some posts scheduled and a few planned (fingers crossed for wifi!) but I've promised myself that all of that will come second to tuning into all that is happening around me, to being fully engaged with the students and residents, to saying yes when opportunities open. I owe you a few more photos from India (and the story of how we came to attend a teaching with the Dalai Lama while we were there) and some from Zurich and Ireland as well, but for now I thought I'd share a few favorites from my first trip to El Salvador back in 2012!
