Jessica Karyn Reichard, in a bold but not entirely unexpected move, is selling most of her things, packing an unnecessary amount of clothing, and moving to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Her goals include not getting typhoid, fluency in Spanish, a tiny Guatemalan husband, and a sense of direction. Below are her stories, thoughts, mediocre photos, and inspirations - read with care, they may occasionally contain inappropriate humor, intense cynicism, and unpredictable mood swings. Enjoy.
