This is Jennifer. She is a Peace Corps Volunteer serving
in Guatemala. Jenn recently sent us some photos from her site,
and they are shown below.
Most of the following pictures were taken in Amatitlan,
Guatemala. Amatitlan is near a lake and also, I believe, near a live
volcano. There are a few pictures taken with another Peace Corps
Volunteer (David), as well as with several of the people
they met who are natives of the country.
There is also a photo of some special people who have been
so kind to Jennifer while she's
been down there. Peace Corps Volunteers live with a host family
while they are in training, and Jenn's really took her under their
wing. They are a wonderfully warm, caring, and delightful family and
have been of great help to Jennifer. We look forward to meeting them
during our visit to Guatemala this December.
This is a view of the lake from a location that is reached
by cable car.

and these images are drawn on the streets the parade goes
through. The people in the parade walk right through the
sawdust drawings, destroying
