Leavin on a jet plane

We are at the airport in Miami, waiting for our next flight. Some of us are reconnecting with family and friends on the phone, some are catching up on nine days worth of news, and others are swapping stories or looking back at photographs. Whatever we are up to, in the back of our minds are the amazing people who supported us in Guatemala. 

A huge thank you to Franklin, Andy, Devon, Matt, Lindsay, Pedro and Jason with As Green As It Gets. You showed us around, shared ideas, and were just plain fun to hang around. Matt, we hope our digging skills made you proud!

To our awesome translators: Allison, Juan Manuel, and Guillermo...you kick ass! Thank you for helping us communicate, and for teaching us.

To our drivers: thank you for safely getting us from point A to point B. Wow!

And to the farmers and artisans: your kindness, patience, and passion will not be forgotten. We will share your stories, emulate your work ethic, and remember you fondly. We will be better consumers and better people for having met you. 

Love all of us!
