We knew that June was the start of the rainy season here in Guatemala, but I guess knowing and experiencing are two very different things. It has been crazy this week. At some point between 2-4 it starts to rain and usually continues well into the night. I don´t know but this might be what it´s like to live in Seattle, except without all the Starbucks and a few other small differences I´m sure. So we have not done much this week with all the rain, we played a little cards with the Irwins (who have saved our lives because they are so prepared and have rainjackets and umbrellas, so they have loaned us one of their umbrellas so we each have one). We went to a really cool restaurante last night, but I´ll let Jessica talk about that. I played soccer again this week (in the rain of course), I´m fairly sore but scored my first two international goals. I know what your thinking and yes there was a goalie, sure she was only around 5 ft. tall but let´s not get caught up on details here. And world cup began today, so school was stopped to watch the game. Oh and to answer the moms´volcano questions there are three right around Antigua, one is active. But it´s not a big deal apparently (of course that´s what they probably said in Pompeii) it last erupted in 2002 I think. Well that´s about it we have an exciting Saturday ahead but I won´t tell you about it so you´ll be eagerly awaiting the next post.
