Back To Guatemala

At the end on the month I'll be leaving once again for my yearly visit to Guatemala where I eagerly anticipate hooking up with old friends.
I go with the group Masons On A Mission (only a couple of us are masons, and I'm not one of them), and we build energy efficient stoves for the Mayas. Not only are the stoves very efficient, but they vent to the outdoors so that the Mayas will not be breathing suffocating smoke in their homes. Without these stoves, the Mayas prepare food on their three stone fires, indoors, resulting in many respiratory illnesses.
