Yesterday the team worked in the village. The nursing students along with their advisor were flying through the well-child checkups.
The construction team started mixing cement and pouring the foundation. Today they finished it and started with the cement blocks.
Since today was a national holiday (New Years) we had a little bit of change in schedules. And we learned a few things:
|1. We learned that the chicken buses do NOT run on New Years. Luckily we know a guy with a pickup truck who does|
|2. In the children's program we learned how to make wooden spoon puppets and how to control many kids who all wanted soccer balls|
|3. Some of the team learned how hard it is to put tape in a straight line|
|4. We learned how to make a traditional guatemalan dish - Pepian Chicken with rice. They made and delivered 16 plates to elderly and sick people in the village.|
|5. We learned that practice makes (almost) perfect|
|6. We learned that we need a LOT more practice at making tortillas|
|7. We learned that it is harder than it seems|
|8. We learned how to distinguish a guatemalan tortilla from a gringo one|
|9. Colleen learned the technique|
|10. The team learned how much kids love a piñata|
Welcome to 2015! May we keep learning from and loving the people that PID is serving.
