Pascal goes to Cerra de la Cruz

A quick post today to just let you know I’m feeling better. I had already told them yesterday to cancel everything for today so I could rest up for the weekend, so I slept in. I woke up at the normal 7:00am and felt like I should eat so I had a banana and felt kind of icky again so I went back to sleep until 11:00 or so. Marnie, one of my housemates, wanted to go walking around exploring once I woke up. I was originally not going to go, but I had got a headache from sleeping so much. Even though my stomach was still bugging me, I decided to go with her in hopes that it would be good for it.

Turns out, it seemed to help a lot. I’m returning to my classes today and I’ve been out and about a bit. We hiked to Cerra de la Cruz where you can see the whole city, but it’s a bit cloudy today (Rained for the first time early this morning) so I will post better pictures later when I bring my real camera to the top.

Pascal made it to the top of Cerra de La Cruz. It was pretty steep at the beginning. Wasn't sure he would make it! ;)

I’m not 100% better. It seems like my stomach hurts every time I eat, but each time it seems less bad now at least. I think sometimes you just need to push yourself through something to get better. I think I would have felt worse if I had stayed home today because I would not only have a stomachache, but I would start hating on myself for missing so much.

This is the chicken soup Isolina made yesterday. I had it for lunch and dinner yesterday

I just wanted to let you guys know I am feeling better because I know you all worry and I most likely won’t be posting again ’til at least Monday since we are headed to Lake Atítlan for the weekend! All of us can’t wait to go out to eat and get some good AMERICAN food! After being sick, I miss American food so much. I want a #*$#%#($* waffle.

    Elizabeth,

    Hope this message makes it to you. Glad to hear that you are setting in. Your situation sounds good. Yes, our family can relate to the noise of the streets and roosters, stomach problems, and exhaust smells. Keep up the good work getting out of your comfort zone. It helps you relate to the majority of the world that lives so very differently from us. We recognize the g-vege as chayote. You will see it with the chilies in the grocery stores in the US- same with the hibiscus flowers used to make the hibiscus jamaica drink.. You are getting a bigger variety of food that we have enjoyed in Guatemala. Love the pictures! Don`t complain about the lack of ac. Our friend lives in the jungle region near Tikal and it’s muy calor todo ano. We look forward to hearing more of you adventures. Cuidado. Love, Kristin
