Cantel, Las Fuentes Georginas, Zunil Guatemala, el catorce de deciembre, 2016
Rather than sit in a classroom today, Magdalena and I went touring. Our first stop was in the pueblo of Cantel where we had hoped to see glass blowing at Copavic. Unfortunately the workers are on holidays so we just got to see some of the product-
And the ovens-
There were piles of colored glass waiting to be turned into something new. Tomorrow a huge shipment goes to Austria. I'm pretty sure I've seen some of this in Canada. I was very disappointed that they weren't working today.
After getting off our second chicken bus of the morning, we were in Zunil-
And workers planting-
As we moved along-
The hot springs were lovely-
After las fuentes, we tried hitching a ride back down the hill but eventually had to hire a tuk-tuk. Foreigners would pay $17 but we got away with $5 because we were Guatemalicas!
which has great wooden doors inside-
Across the street was a funeral party, complete with a band-
Some streets are pretty rough-
This is more like it-
On our way back to Xela-
