Where I stayed

After my crazy Livingston day I hopped on a boat and headed for a self described bed and breakfast but more of an eco-lodge type place called Finca Tatin www.fincatatin.centramerica.com .  Finca Tatin is set on an inlet of the Rio Dulce.  Hammocks abound, fabulous food and absolute tranquility.  This was the first time I got into a bathing suite since arriving in Guatemala:)  There is also, Ak´Tenamit www.aktenamit.org, a fabulous NGO that fits all my requirements of  "a good NGO".  The Q´eqchi community heads it up and on top of that they have a full on serious commitment to gender equity.  It was only a 20 minute hike from Finca Tatin, thus, after a little jaunt in the orchid laden jungle I met two teen aged girls who asked if I wanted to see there schools.  Ya, for sure and they gave me a grand tour of the grounds.  I will be heading there in the future to volunteer.  They also really need doctors, nurses, dentists etc to volunteer.  After a few days I headed out to Flores and that is when everything started to get a little crazy!!!
