Tribute to San Marcos: CFGB visit

San Marcos is a beautiful and rugged part of Guatemala with many interesting and complex issues, amazing landscape, and even more amazing and generous people. Many of you have had the pleasure of exploring this area, as did a group of young adults with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank a few weeks ago. Ellen Paulley, the leader of the group, has put together a great story and slideshow about their time here; please visit here to see the pictures (the images are fantastic!) and read the story.

Also, many of you have asked for suggestions on books, articles, etc., that touch on the issues you learned about while you were here. One of those issues is the mining situation that continues to greatly impact San Marcos and other parts of Guatemala. Below you will find a short list of suggested books and articles if you are interested in continuing to learn about this complex issue.
We hope you enjoy these images and reflections from the CFGB group! Thank you to Anne Barkett and other past participants for the pictures.


what trip experiences have been the most meaningful for you?
the mine was mentally and emotionally challenging, but highly important
empanadas and basketball in La Vega; loved seeing two cultures coming together
the home stays; they were the hardest, but most meaningful
the hike! proving to myself that i could do it




what did you hear/see/experience that impacted you in a powerful way?
the issue of land ownership
learning about and seeing the mine
seeing all the barbed wire and gates around the houses
the visual of the dump reminds me of issues that transcend countries; how are we caring for the earth?
everything



were any assumptions challenged by what you experienced?
the assumption that indigenous people have a terrible, hard life
home stays had a high level of cleanliness; not what is stereotypically depicted
view of Roman Catholic church is shifting
experienced a great amount of hospitality and joy visiting and staying with Guatemalan people



what do you feel compelled to do or share with others?
the mine!
i want to share the mine story
the issue of mining justice, both in Guatemala and elsewhere; as Canadians, we have a responsibility to be engaged in this issue

For one more look at what there is to see and learn in San Marocs, watch this great video: Sibinal, un destino de montaña por descubrir

You may be surprised to see yourself or other familiar faces in the video!

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate
it.

Hello there! This post could not be written much better!
Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

He always kept preaching about this. I am going to send this article to him.
Fairly certain he's going to have a very good read. Many thanks for sharing!
