Welp, I haven’t posted in a while, but that’s because my last months in site have been very busy. At the end of October I, and many others in our training group’s (Bak’tun 6’s) Maternal and Child Health program had our bell ringing ceremony, which volunteers typically do a few days before either leaving their country of service on an airplane flight paid for by Uncle Sam, or take the time to travel the region. Here are some photos from Bak’tun 6’s Maternal and Child Health cohort bell ringing ceremony:
My host family from training was able to come to the ceremony! It’s been amazing seeing their three year-old daughter grow so quickly over the past couple years!
We also got to do a short presentation on our service, which for all of us included some of the plethora of photos we’ve been taking in our towns over the past two years.
Here is the full group of us who were ending our service!
Here is a photo of the last sunset I will see in my town, (at least for the foreseeable future).
A pile of name tags on a table in one of the lecture rooms at Peace Corps reminds us that Peace Corps Guatemala is a constitutive process, new volunteers are building on what past volunteers have done.
