Marla is one of the young people that attends the church in San Juan. Saturday her family invited us over for lunch at their house.
This is Marla's mama. Next to her is their woodburning stove, where our meal was cooked.
Here is some of the group that was there:
Left to right: Marla's mom; her sister Dora; friend's mom; friend whose name I can't remember; Marla; and another older sister who cooked our delicious meal.
Johanna's digging in!
We had chicken that reminded me of a Guatemalan dish called Pepian, but it wasn't exactly that. I would call it Chicken and Broccoli Yum!
We enjoyed the Guatemalan hospitality. Casual, comfortable, and so friendly...
And look what Jillian, our animal-lover, caught:
This little pigeon flew down to the patio, Jillian cornered it and caught it, and it seemed perfectly happy to come home with her!
