I’m back in the states. It’s nice to be able to understand people again.
Right before we left, Boaz Dvir (our trip leader) was doing an interview with me for his film about our class. He asked how the adjustment back to American life would be. I thought for a long time before realizing that my time in Guatemala seems like a totally different life. I put up the photos of that life today.
In my American life: Toilet paper goes in the toilet and not the trash. I have a toilet. There are rules on the highway. My Honda Civic is not the nicest car on the road. When I turn on the faucet, I will always have water. My roof doesn’t leak, and the bugs stay outside.
This may seem sappy or cliche, but it’s so true. It’s hard to realized how blessed we are until we live another life.
