In Guatemala, a tocaya is someone who shares your name. This woman was one of the leaders of the group of women that we had formed and she took us to the homes when we did our visits. She is from a community called Las Cuevas (3 hours -on foot- away from the main town) and it was one of my favorites for the people and the sheer beauty of the place. After walking up and up and up the mountain, the land broke out into a flat valley that was kissed by the sun, this was where Las Cuevas was. During most of the time that we went on home visits there, she was pregnant. Right before I finished my service, she had a baby girl. She was named Emily, after me.
