Happy Thanksgiving!! This was my first Thanksgiving away from my family and so I really didn’t expect to eat well. I also expected to be a slight bit lonesome, but as these pictures will show you I was neither friendless or foodless over Thanksgiving.
These are the friends I got to share my thanksgiving meal with. The Parents at the school provided a huge Thanksgiving meal for everyone, almost 300 people, and the food was
This was the massive amount of food the parents provided for the teachers. What a great way to celebrate an American holiday in Guatemala. I also had a large dinner on Thursday over at my friend’s house. Both times I left thinking that I never needed to eat again. That’s a Feast.
And finally this was how I spent my Thanksgiving day. I hiked up La Muela (The Muller) with some friends. It was a beautiful hike and I had a great time. Thanksgiving to me is about friends, family and food. I usually spend my Thanksgiving eating and eating and watching football and eating some more. All done with and around my family. This year I didn’t have the opportunity to be around my family, but as you guys can see I was blessed with a few friends to spend my Thanksgiving break with, and sometimes friends are as good as a family. I want to close with a question. What is Thanksgiving to you?
