One of the most defining moments for my experience in Guatemala was having conversations and interactions with my friend Catocho at the resident home. Talking with him and the other residents at Virgen Del Soccorro helped me see Antigua in a new way. It is really easy to go to a new place and only see the beauty and glamor. This was true for me the first few days we were in Guatemala. It wasn’t until I interacted with residents like Catocho that I began to see it’s the people, not the beautiful things, that make up a certain place.
