The Advocacy/Investigative/Central American SEED tour!

On May 19th, my half of the Seed team headed off to Mexico…. (I strongly suggest you click on the pictures to see them more fully. Photo credit goes mainly to Seeder Daniela Velasquez and in part to Anna Vogt, two wonderful photographers who saved this blog entry when my camera´s card gave up the ghost)

When our facilitator Nathan picked us up a the Guatemala airport none of us were in a great mood….Carolina and Juan had been taken to a back room for ¨extra¨questioning because they´re Colombian, and were only released when the interogator saw Larisa and my gringa-faces. Besides that we were all pretty tired from the 5 days in Mexico, interesting and delicious as they had been, and I personally was still getting over (and still am not quite over) whatever fiendish being caused me to eruptile vomit on the airport´s shiny floor in Bogota the day we left. We met up with the other half of our group which had been to Honduras (to the city that currently holds the dubious honor of having the highest murder rate in Latin America, I believe…) and had informal dinner discussions and a somewhat uncomfortable morning sing-along-time with the regional workers and Latin American Reps for MCC. Remember our topic is: What is advocacy? How can it be done? How is MCC doing it and how should it be doing it?
