Finally, the last leg of our journey was spent in Guatemala where we truly embraced ourselves in the culture and learned about the war/genocide that took place and how the effects are still occurring. Some things we learned about way back in Chicago such as the common good and preferential option for the poor could be seen in Guatemala as well. During our time we also learned about the coffee growing and selling market because many of our host families were in the coffee business. Finally, we were able to live and laugh with our host families and were given the opportunity to explore and experience all that Guatemala had to offer.
