Over the next few days we will be following zachspassport, as he traces the unique story of his parents after they met on a bus and fell in love in Guatemala 37 years ago.
My grandfather, Jim, visits my parents in 1979. In jest, Jim would introduce my father as his “sin-in-law” since my parents were not yet married. In this photo, my parents were moving Jim’s belongings over to their friend Jean’s house. Jean, an American whom my father had known from his earliest moments in Panajachel, was also the editor of his first travel book on Guatemala. As Jean’s health declined, my father purchased the house and it became our family’s home.
