Ducks and Spanish Love Songs

So this week has been good. I have gotten a bit closer to the woman I am staying with and she is teaching me to make a Guatemalan shirt. I think it will be quite pretty. She is also teaching me to make tortillas from scratch as in from corn. Wow.

Last night was really wonderful. I skipped libraby volunteering along with all the other volunteers to go hang out at the park. We wound up hanging out with an awesome duck whom I have named Mohawk and listening to a local man play really pretty music on his guitar. We ate hot dogs and had a couple of beers. There were really big fireflies everywhere and also a toad. Very nice night.

This week we finished the bridge we started last week and also built a room for a school. School here is not mandatory and really is not like school at home. The teachers seem to take breaks whenever they like and likewise the children go to their classrooms whenever they like. But anyway we built another room. And I must say it looks nice.

Worry dolls for the week
1) That the strange bitetype thing in my bellybutton is actually some eggs of some bug waiting to hatch
2) That Mohawk will reject all offers I make for him to accompany me home
3) The turantula that lives in the park
