Bright and early this morning son Isaac - my chauffeur - and I headed to PDX, our home airport, made even cooler than usual this time around by a large, gorgeous fabric sculpture exhibit of an ethereal under water world.
I mentally waved bye to mountains Adams and Hood and my home in between
Beca Project kids. Gratefully the checked bag made the quick layover successfully, too, and the way through immigration and customs was what it was. We met up with 2 more group members as we exited the airport - Julie and Kim.
Hurray for the friendly shuttle guy with my name on a sign! In an hour we made our way through the outskirts of Guatemala City
Casa Cristina in Antigua: left to right shuttle guy (sorry I didn't catch his name), Beth, Laurilyn, Julie, Kim, and Theresa.
