Winding Down to the End...

Hey everyone! Today will be our last day of work...This afternoon we will be teaching two seminars to the local people. I will teach them about how to build a website for FREE and Scott will be teaching them about social media! I think that both of these topics will be very valuable to the growth of El Remate and all of the businesses within this small, but beautiful place. As we went door to door yesterday to invite everyone, the individuals seemed very interested and excited to have some outside help from VSU SIFE and SBDC. We hope to have a great turn out today!

Tomorrow is MONDAY, FUN DAY!! Yay!! We will wake very early and load the bus at 5:15AM to head to Tikal. Hotel Gringo Perdido will pack us a lunch to take and we will enjoy exploring Tikal National park until around 2PM. After that we plan to take one last stroll through the village to do some shopping and have one last experience with these great people! After that we will have our normal night routine...sunset, dinner, star gazing and BED! Tuesday morning we fly out of Flores at 8:30 and return back to Valdosta at 9:43!!

We have all been very blessed to have been given this great opportunity! I know that we will all be leaving here with many great stories and aspirations of ways to continue helping the great people of El Remate. This will be our last blog until we reach the Atlanta airport Tuesday afternoon. Thank you to everyone for all of their support, we look forward to more amazing updates for you once we arrive in the states!
