All in the Family & Cha-cha-cha-changes!

While we may not be the Bunch de Brady, some of us still wear mis-matchy clothes and have big hair.  The second was taken care of recently in the pictures below.  The other is just the style and the cultural dress here called traje.  I have a new concept of fashion and what goes together.  Interestingly and appropriately there is no translation for "to match" in Spanish.  I may need help readjusting when we return home.  

And when I was growing up when you're under 3, you got baths in the sink.  And here in Guatemala it's no different.  Except it's outside and the sink is called a pila.  Haircuts are done by your parents and if you're lucky, no one can tell the difference.  But, of course, there are a few differences.  Our new flushing toilet is maroon and not really inside.  Our new shower is a great room for bathing naked but we still heat our water outside by fire.

Where we're from, kids aren't allowed to touch the matches under the age of 12 or so.  Here you get to use them as soon as you tie your shoes.  You even get to spend a Saturday burning the family land to avoid a worse and out-of-control blaze when you're not around.  Check out our family and a birthday celebration complete with comida de gringos, hamburgers.
