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.

In Guatemala!

A welcome from the Safe Passage children
I finally arrived in Guatemala!  There are so many stories to tell of the adventures onboard SV Polaris with Bernie Horn and the crew who all volunteered so much of their time for this trip, bringing me and school supplies down for Safe Passage.  And the welcome in Guatemala has been so moving.  On Monday I have a media day and Tuesday is the formal celebration.  Once I am back in the US, I will catch you up on all of the stories and photos.  

Now I am still trying to get rid of my "sea legs" that have persisted for way too many days!  Guatemala looks different when it is constantly swaying and rolling.  I keep thinking it it another earthquake.  I'm heading out to try to walk it off.  Don't want to have the drunken sailer walk on TV.  Not quite the right image for Safe Passage.
