Aaron making rebar in Guatemala with fellow participant Jasmine
My experience in Guatemala was the best but the pollution was very bad, and as much as I wanted to stay and finish the houses I wanted to come back to Canada to the fresh air. The instructors Freddy and David were awesome people who were very funny. I had an awesome time working with Habitat for Humanity and the family that we were making the house for were very interesting. Working with the Guatemalan workers was kind of fun as well because they were all about working, but they didn’t mind us taking breaks often. There was also an internet cafe near our work site so whenever we had a lunch break we would go there after we’d finished eating. Something else we got to do for fun was go to a hot springs which was very relaxing and the driver Mario was awesome. The last week in Guatemala was rest and relaxation, but it didn’t seem like it because they had us up each morning at 6 AM for breakfast. Then we would be off for the day but it was great, the markets we went to were awesome! Even though almost all of us were counting down the days to come back to Canada, the trip to Guatemala was great but now I just can’t wait to go back home and relax all the time haha.
