One morning, in Guatemala, there were 5 of us sitting around the breakfast table. Kayla was sitting to my right, Adéle directly across from me, Meghan to her left, and Pablo, one of the residents of the house, to my immediate left, at the head of the table. We were having a conversation about something. As normally happens with conversations, there was a lull in it. Everyone became quiet. 3 … 2 … 1 … I like tacos!!! ~Kayla Suddenly…

Antigua is a nice 1 Km x 1 Km, so about 4 km, or 2.5 miles around the parameter. Some mornings I walked all the way around, others, I went street by street…

I wish that it weren’t true, but it is. My niece is completely, unabashedly addicted to her cellphone and to social media. The whole time that we were in Guatemala, it was a difficult time to get her to unplug for more than a few minutes at a time.
