I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

Guatemala is only one day away...

My son gave me this old Pan Am poster for Christmas this year.
I keep looking at it and repeating "Guatemala is only one day away..."  Does it tempt me to change my mode of transportation?  No.  I am sticking to my kayak and paddling one day at a time.   With a little persistence, and the help of many supporters along the way, I will get to that time when Guatemala really will be one day away.  But of course, I'll have to carry on a few more days to finally get to the children at Safe Passage.
