Xela Full Moon Hike

... which was swiftly running out of battery. I was finding it really hard, and my knee was literally giving way from under me the whole time. It was also incredibly hard to see. After about 20 minutes of walking we heard voices and saw torches ahead of us, Cesar told me to stop and turn the torch off and looked into the pitch black.

... lives and they shared their lives with us, showing us old family photographs. The grandmother of the house visited and starting telling us about how we should wait to get married, which isn't the usual ideology of Guatemalan society. Most Guatemalan women are married with children well before my age. I was surprised how open the grandmother was at sharing the tragic story of her daughter being a victim of domestic abuse.
