Friday morning in Chajul! We woke up with a bittersweet feeling. It was the last full day in Chajul, and our group was heading out to AGROS, a coffee farm on the edge of Nebaj in Rio Azul.
For the trip, the girls decided to take a little extra time to get dolled up, after spending two weeks in T-shirts and dirty jeans.
Ready for the coffee farm, the gang loaded up in a microbus with Reynaldo, our driver for the past two weeks who has gotten us safely to our destinations.
It was a short ride to the coffee farm, where our team was under the impression that we were having lunch, but that changed upon arrival. Thank goodness we packed our flexibility!
Jake, our group leader, saved the day by setting up a reservation in Nebaj for us. After a fun-filled tour through AGROS, the team was ready for a delicious and most definitely filling lunch in town.
Next, we headed back to the Limitless Horizons Ixil office for a heart-warming goodbye party with the staff.
We shared our last feelings among the group, and a game of musical chairs proceeded to get the real party started. Dancing around with the LHI students, with whom we have spent most of our time in Chajul, filled the room with excitement and joy.
Cake completed the festivities, and off to the Posada we headed to pack and spend our last night with the wonderful staff who have dealt with us for the past two weeks.
Once again, that bittersweet feeling rose and filled the Posada as our team packed and cleaned up what we called home for two weeks.
Hasta luego, Chajul, the small town in Quiché that touched all of our hearts!
