The First night in our Home
So the internet is significantly slower and it is too hard to post pictures at the moment. After going to the school yesterday and participating in the activities we went home and had a delicious dinner with our home stays.
Today, we went back to the school to start our first day of the service learning project. With the donations the school was able to buy enough tiles to redo the floor of the two new classrooms and paint the walls. We worked on painting the walls with some students from the school and got both painted in just one day. We also got to participate in gym class with the students and played: capture the flag, soccer, four corners, and a fun version of ring around the rosies.
By mid day we headed back to the lodge for lunch and are going swimming this afternoon to help survive the extreme heat. We are going to learn about local plants and herbs this afternoon and then it is back to the home stay at night.
Tomorrow we are going back to the school to take part in English classes and in the afternoon we are going to an organic farm to see how they grow vanilla, black pepper, raise pigs, and chickens.
