This coming Thursday the village of Santa Cruz is organizing a cleaning of the lake front to remove all the plastic. This is part of a world-wide initiative of SURFRIDER EUROPE to educate about plastic waste in lakes, rivers and the seas. Come and support us in Sta Cruz La Laguna. The clean up starts at 0800 at the municipal pier. Teams will clean from Isla Verde to Laguna Lodge. 1100-1130 a snack will be served and at 1200 a thank you from the city. All collected materials will be transfered to Panajachel. Please join in and/or send your guardians to help.

Looking for something to read, but don't know what? I just discovered this cool website that lets you set your own criteria for book recommendations according to your mood or taste. Whichbook.net is a British site and the books are all English language. You can set 4 slider bars (out of a few dozen criteria) to suit the intensity level of a category; i.e. conventional to unusual, optimistic to bleak, short to long, no sex to lots of sex. Or you can set it to define the main character, plot line or setting (including imaginary). Once you have set your combinations, a list of well-selected, annotated titles appears with its cover, library and purchase links, ebook and audiobook availability, and a share link. Create your own lists or browse through their customized lists in categories such as Weird and Wonderful, Bad Luck and Trouble, and Laugh Your Pants Off. Or find a book you read that you loved and find similar books. Sign up for their blog and you will get a book of the week review.
