It feels surreal for a number of reasons: to be far from the lush forest of Reserva Patrocinio, where we spent our last few days, with a focus on transference back home; to be saying goodbyes and talking about moments that we have shared together over the past month that has flown by!; and to be packed and ready to leave Guatemala, Spanish and each other behind, at least for now.

The sentiment is certainly one of holding on until the end.... to the last moments, conversations, and even embers of the fading fogata...

For the last two days we spent most of our hours hot and sweaty, working on a mural underneath the Guatemalan sun. Our group has spent the last week at the Chico Mendes Reforestation Project, and the mural was supposed to be our last impression in the small town of Pachaj. As pictured in the photo above, we wrote a quote in the blue banner underneath the picture. It reads: A menos que cambiemos de dirección, probablemente terminaremos adonde ibamos. In English, the quote translates to: Unless we change direction, we are likely to end up where we are going. In Pachaj for the past sixteen years, the entire community has been working to reforest the land. We all thought that the quote really emphasized how the volunteers at the Chico Mendes Project have decided to take a different path- a harder path - from that of harmful industrialization. Now, they are protecting the environment for future generations. This small community is making a big ripple, and it has been an honor to contribute to this effort for a better Guatemala.

    [post_content] => Impossible, Made Possible

When we had been told that we were supposed to create a spiral garden for the Chico Mendez project, all of us kids were definitely not optimistic.

Although we had been taught a few ideas of permaculture-style gardens, the idea that we were supposed to be building a style of garden that we had never seen before out of stones and dirt, most of us didn’t believe that we could accomplish it. Pessimistic conversations were exchanged between all of the students about how stupid it was to build this strange garden. How it couldn’t be accomplished. How the instructors were just trying to be supportive by telling us that we could complete the garden in a morning AND plant it. After all, most of us were still confused about what a spiral garden was. Hanna, our instructor who had built spiral gardens before but never this size, had shown us multiple drawn diagrams, but all of us still muttered under our breath how stupid and pointless it was; there was no way that we could finish.

All of us arrived at the site of where we were supposed to build the garden at 8 o’clock. After being confirmed by our instructors in their faith in our ability to build the garden, we exchanged knowing looks and reluctantly got to work, sure in the fact that we would be leaving behind a pile of rocks.

After roughly two and a half hours of carting stone, dirt, building, a little bickering, filling, and an awkward encounter with an indignant man after we had unknowingly carted away his gravel, we looked in amazement at the mostly-completed garden. With plenty of time to work left, we had already built up the entire garden. All of our hard work had paid off, and we were left with a garden that would be an example for the entire community so that they, too, could build spiral gardens that would efficiently use space to create ideal climates for individual plants.

We definitely had a lot of doubts about the project. Even as the garden took shape, there definitely were angry mutters about what a waste of time this was when we couldn’t even finish the garden. But perhaps what we all should have kept in mind was the amount of things that we had accomplished that we didn’t think we could have done before. Not just the large things, like the 3-day trek that many people expressed doubt about. Even just small things, like going to the bathroom in the woods. Speaking Spanish to our families. Interacting with the local people. The entire point of an experience like this, I believe, is to step out of the comfort zone. Go outside, a little bit, of what you think is possible for yourself and realize that you can do things that you never thought you could before. I think that we were all reminded of this as we celebrated and snapped pictures of a finished spiral garden that we never thought that we would complete.

    [post_content] => I see trees,
With leaves that flutter in the afternoon sun.
I see kids in the streets,
Who play football just to have fun.
I see volcanoes,
With peaks that pierce the clouds in the sky.
I see the smiles on the faces
Of people passing by.
I see a blinding sun,
With beams that bounce off a giant lake.
I see big cities,
That always seem to stay awake.
I see stars,
That brighten rural skies with their light.
And a great big moon
That lights up the night.
I see Guatemala.

I hear dogs,
Whose barks can fill city blocks.
I hear the sound of the rooster,
That wakes me at 4 o’clock.
I hear the buzz of a fly,
As it zips passed my ear.
I hear laughter at the dinner table,
Because my whole family is here.
I hear words in Spanish,
In K'iche' and Katchiquel.
That as far as I know,
I can never seem to spell.
I hear the sounds of rain,
pounding against the ground.
I hear music all around me,
Each a different kind of sound.
I hear Guatemala.

I smell the scent of hot coffee,
Every morning and night.
I smell the smoke of a campfire
Or a small candle light.
I smell incense
As it fills the entire room.
Or the smell of cars going by,
That leave behind smoky fumes.
I smell all kinds of flowers,
Of white, yellow, and blue.
And the smell of clean laundry,
And a warm bed too.
I smell fresh paint,
Ready to design a blank, white wall.
Or the smell of a cloud forest,
With trees fifty feet tall.
I smell Guatemala.

I taste the steaming hot tortillas
On my plate all the time.
And sweet lemonade,
With lemons that look like limes.
I taste hot tea,
That helps clear my mind.
Or the delicious sweet bread,
That leaves all my worries behind.
I taste the hot chile,
With a taste that feels like fire.
Or each bag of Tortrix,
That everyone seems to desire.
I taste bean paste,
That comes with almost every meal.
And who could forget the amazing pancakes,
And how great it made everyone feel.
I taste Guatemala.

I feel the hot sun,
As it bounces off my face.
Or the aching pain in my back
From my heavy suitcase.
I feel the wind slam against my face
In the back of a pickup truck.
Or my intense stomach pains
Due to my extremely bad luck.
I feel the sweat trickle down my forehead
After a long busy day.
Or my extreme pride
After trekking a very long way.
I feel my the weight of my eyelids
And my desire to fall asleep.
And the strong bonds of friendship
That we all wish to keep.
I feel Guatemala

Trek Reflection

Description

The trek was hard especially finishing together and keeping positive.  Our group exceeded at both and the trek (which could have caused conflict and torn our group apart) ended as a bonding experience, leaving us feeling closer together than we do to many other people in the world.

Going back to our time at the permaculture center on the shore of Lake Atitlan, this photo gallery brings us to our current project work here in Pachaj. It includes our visit to Quixaya, an incredibly beautiful community where we got an intro to aquaculture; images from San Antonio Palopó, where we were awed by the magic of the lake; select shots of sunsets and volcanoes from our trek as we hiked up into remote Mayan villages and along routes that played an important role in the Civil War; birthday celebrations (¡Feliz cumpleaños, Jack!) in Xela, where we got to fill up on delicious food and urban culture; the time we hiked in to the highlands to help plant 700 (yeah, SEVEN HUNDRED) trees with a group of 100+ local kids here in Pachaj, as well as an inspiring Theater of the Oppressed workshop where worlds collided... and then collaborated. Enjoy!
