Thank You Ira and Ana Lucia

We are back from Central America and as much as I want to complete the recent series of travel logs with a final report on our time in Guatemala, I am (alas) waiting for the hard-drive that stored all of the photos from the trip to be repaired. The drive unfortunately crashed on the last day.

In the meantime, however, I want to say thank you to both Ira Lippke (our photographer) and Ana Lucia (our translator). Like so many people involved in Agros, they are extraordinary people – gifted, generous, committed to making a difference in the world, and good friends. I cannot thank them enough for their work on this trip. Together – we walked, drove, rode, and flew across three countries and thousands of miles; met hundreds of miraculous, beautiful people in Agros communities; and shot over 12 hours of video and over 3,000 photos. You’ll be seeing the fruit of this work over the next year(s) to come. Ira and Ana Lucica – thank you.

Here are a few ‘behind the scenes’ photos from the trip:

I join in the thanks to Ana Lucia, though. Ana, you are such a radient human being – Thank you for sharing your self and your talents so generously!

Another thing I want to thank you is the possibility you gave me to meet this incredible and talented person.
