and met my 2nd couchsurfing host: Kent. we spoke briefly about couchsurfing and i told him how it has been difficult to find people willing to host me. we both agreed that it’s my lack of references (i just signed up when i started the trip anyways, so it’s understandable). but he told me the reason why he accepted me is that sometimes, you just have to give people a chance… and he gave me that chance.

Kent was a gracious host filled with many stories of his own travels. he’s seen most of and lived in many parts of South America, spending his time building orphanages and language schools there, giving children and many young adults a chance at a better life. inspiring.

he hooked it up with a nice Guatemalan style dinner.
