In this episode, we answer some of the emails we receive. As we claim to learn a lot about ourselves in the opening and closing of each of our podcasts, many of our listeners want to know what we learn from our travels. We share a little of ourselves and the things we learn, like listening to others, accepting others beliefs and not trying to make others believe the same as we believe. We also share a story of how we learn gratefulness. So join us and share your own thoughts with us!

The bloody Civil War of the Republic de Guatemala ended in 1996. Twenty years later, today, the country continues to grow and prosper. The effort to rid the remnants of war, hangover warriors and other ego’s that still reach for power, is helping bring back the peace and beauty that this country has to offer.
Oh, we felt safe, with some caution. The heavily armed security guards, and I do mean heavily armed, are posted at most restaurants and establishments. A pistol on the hip and a massive shotgun in the hands, ready to blow anyone’s head off should there be a threat is to some, un-nerving, to me, it is reassuring. He didn’t shoot me. I took it as a sign that he was on my side.

It’s rare, but once in that very unique moment, the one you least expected anything, a story, place, and a face reach up and unexpectedly take hold of your heart. It’s an act completely selfless. You feel it. You recognize it. You let it happen because something else is in control, but yet it feels so good to feel something towards another human being. There’s no anger, no sympathy, no other negative feelings to get in the way of this so good feeling. I can only attribute it to what a genuine love might feel like. I felt in complete acceptance of who I was. I felt no judgements. Most importantly, it was me that was feeling it from them. Who are them? The Guatemalan people.
The children will take your heart away. I’m not certain how it’s done, but it’s done. I can only guess that Mom and Dad had something to do with it. From our experiences in this beautiful town of Antigua, Guatemala, I can honestly say what I write here is from my heart as inspired and awakened by our visit to this town.
Join us on this episode of Stories Faces Places, Antigua, Guatemala as we introduce you to the wonderful people of this region of the world.

Well, we stopped in Chicago again for a quick two days. Why? No particular reason other than we like the city. So we kicked off our fall tour in the Windy City. Our first stop was Shaw’s Crab House again, of course.
