hiking

On Saturday, our school activity was hiking in the mountains.  Quetzaltenango is surrounded by mountains.  We walked out of the city, then into the country.  We saw lots of small fields with vegetables like corn, brocoli, and leeks.  It felt good to get out of the city.  We walked  to a nearby town, Almolonga, saw the market there, then returned to Xela via chicken bus.  The music on the chicken bus made me laugh, as it was the song Red, Red Wine by UB40.

I had to get that song online so that I could relate and try to imagine a chicken bus. Very curious of the sounds, smells and your reactions!137

The sounds, smells and sites must be overwhelming for you at times. Enjoy it all!

Thanks for the updates! Keep them coming - and get a good ring of flash cards for vocabulary words! Raining again here tonight. Hope the sun is shining there!

I am so glad you are keeping us posted, Clair, and with pictures too! I will send you a letter soon. A chicken bus...my!

I haven't been on a chicken bus, but I imagine some of the transportation experiences I had in Mongolia might share some similarities.

Have you gone on any more outings since?
