On assignment for Zoomer Magazine, Rebecca Field Jager recently joined 18 Canadians and headed down to Guatemala to participate in a unique style of vacation. The group, comprised mostly of boomers with little construction experience, will spend the first part of the trip building a classroom addition at a primary school for under-privileged kids. The second part, they’ll spend soaking up the culture, cuisine and countryside of this spectacular destination. Hammer to Hammock, our daily video series, captures the highlights as Rebecca and her cohorts build structures, friendships and memories.
