Saturday: To those who are concerned, we want you to know that we’re happy. Yesterday we went to San Jorge at 7:00 a.m. to clean the beach. The overall experience was very frustrating because we felt like we didn’t clean enough of the beach. I think this is true but it also speaks to how much GS students want to help. Anyways, the rest of the day was amazing with visiting the volcanos and viewing the lakes. After having a photo shoot with the Nicas, we went shopping in a market to complete our gift-getting for the trip. To finish the day off, we had a fiesta with the eleventh grade Nicaraguan students on the bus ride back to our houses.
Sunday: Today was a less eventful day, but just as fun. We spent the morning playing soccer and getting kicked out of the children’s playground, and then we finished the day off with ice cream! All in all, this chill day was much needed and brought the group so much closer — both the Nicas and GS students. We area all excited for the next week and looking forward to seeing our kids tomorrow.
