The second week in June found me travelling away from my brand spankin’ new site and toward the PC office for IST. Luckily, my counterpart Andrés was coming with me, so we got to get to know one another and build our working relationship while we were at it.

The first two days of training were with a Guatemalan counterpart that we brought from out sites, to work on non-formal education concepts as well as improving communication skills and setting expectations for the relationship. The next two days were just us PCVs and we spent them building a greenhouse, planting a medicinal garden, and installing part of a water capture and irrigation system.
