The 2015 Dispatch from our travels in Guatemala.
This year marks a decade since Alianza was formed, and two years since my last visit to Comitancillo, that dusty, desperate place high in the mountains of northwestern Guatemala that has captured my attention for so long. In the face of almost impossible and never ending difficulties, the strength and resilience of its people is too remarkable to ignore. This Dispatch is divided into five segments: people, eating & sleeping, health & safety, work and animals. The travelers were: myself (Rebekah), my husband, Fernando, and our seven year old daughter Marissa. Please let me start by introducing you to the people we met, in order of appearance, on this journey.
