Okay, so I am almost traveled out. I like to explore and be challenged, but it's also nice to have a home base. Honestly, I probably feel this way because it is so hard for me to actually travel and be fulfilled when I can't speak the language (aka me in Indonesia).
And so, I just arrived to Guatemala and well, I am ready to make it a pseudo home-base. :) I'm here to do interviews with indigenous textile weavers for my thesis. As I do my interviews I am also volunteering at Maya Traditions, a non -profit social enterprise which makes accessories and home goods and has ethical tourism. I am so excited! Here are some pictures of the beautiful lake I am based out of, the famous Lake Atitlan in Solola, Guatemala alongside some snapshots of what I do.
More to come and more to explore, stay tuned! ^_^
