Back In Xela, Safe And Sound

Just got back from the mountain school, and now I’m in Xela for my last night…I got this crazy nice hotel room for ten bucks with three beds in it!!! Tomorrow afternoon, I’m taking the four hour bus ride to Guatemala City, where I’ll hope to stay in a hotel near the airport for my morning flight on Monday.

Things are winding down, I feel like I’m just living in a state of hovering around crying all the time right now. After being back in the mountains again, I just want to stay here for longer. But I’m also ready to come home. I have a world of ideas, personal and politica,l waiting to be dumped into action when I get home, back into my real world. In the meantime, I’m going to eat at a nice restaurant tonight, I’m going to say goodbye one last time to my family in Xela, and then I’m just going to sleep and think and just be still for an evening.

Tomorrow will be the final day of the Guatemala phase of this blog…and then it will morph into something else…
