Interesting blog to take a look at
The day we visited the weavers in Teotitlan, on our trip to Mexico, we met a young couple from Seattle at the weaving studio. In fact they wanted to buy the same rug that Muriel ended up getting. Great folks, they offered us a ride back to Oaxaca and we took them out to dinner that evening. We had a great conversation and learned that Megan was a Doctor and David a photographer and teacher. They were headed in a meandering trip toward Chiapas where Megan was going to be volunteering in a hospital for several months. We have followed their progress on their blog since our return. Both are currently working at the hospital in Chiapas and Megan has been writing about the work and the patients she has seen so far. It is fascinating and written with great compassion. I so admire these two generous and talented young people and feel fortunate that we got to meet them. They are certainly doing their part to make the world a little better place.
