On our last full day in Guatemala we also did a project with Aguas de Unidad (Healing Waters International). I had a chance last summer to go to Chiapas, Mexico on a trip with them as well, so it was great to support their efforts in Guatemala, too (you can read about my experience here). ADU was a co-sponsor for a 10k race in Comalapa. Now, Comalapa is not a place that sees a lot of Americans, and we were able to enjoy it for the authentic experience that it was. A lot of the ladies in Comalapa wear traditional dress, which is very beautiful.
