I had a wonderful weekend! I took a tour of the city on Saturday and then wandered around on my own for a few hours. I went into the roofless ruins of the Catedral de Santiago-wow! It was beautiful inside. while I was visiting there were several first communion classes being held in the ruins. I thought it was great that the space is still used. On Sunday I went to dinner with people from work. We went to San Cristobal de Alto and in a wonderful restaurant on the side of the mountain. It’s a farm to table restaurant and the gardens were just behind our table. The food was fresh and amazing! The view of Antigua great.

My internship is going well. I’m working on a website and creating a brochure along with other marketing materials. Friday we’re going to build furniture for the garden from pallets…I’ll post pictures!
