26 Aug Having A (Foot)Ball In Tzibal
Posted at 14:05h in Central AmericaAfter the Fair Trade Early Summer group had left their hearts on the cancha, the tiny aldea of Tzibal (‘Zee-ball’) was more than eager to host another hard-working group of gringos. Having just come off of the trek we were more than accustomed to sore muscles and long days, exactly what we were to experience during our 7 days in Tzibal. In true Q’echi fashion, the Guatemalan community greeted us with open arms, this time trekking 45 minutes into the nearby “town” of Campur to meet us upon arrival. After a round of hugs and brief intros, we all piled into the back of a farm truck to complete our voyage into the hamlet we had come to stay and work in.
