I have a ton of pictures this week so I will try not to write too much!
I had a great week starting to teach English at the school and teaching a lesson on active living three times in different villages for youth group :) It was a lot of names to learn! I am still figuring out a few of them but I think that I am doing pretty well considering :)
I was super sick for a couple of days with the altitude which was hard but I seem to be mostly better now which is great!
A team from Canada (Heart Lake Baptist Church) also arrived on Friday so it has been a full house! It has been fun to have more people around though :)
And now on to the pictures!
First some pictures of the villages where Barb and Gerry have youth group:
|We played some soccer ...|
|The field was just your average field ... farmers, large dogs...|
|And a view like this is just normal...|
|In another village we had to climb down this hill to get to the field|
|Everyone got there ok :)|
|Then we climbed back up the hill to play some pool noodle lacrosse|
|After all that hard work a snack is 'muy importante'|
|These beautiful girls are 9 years old and collect 13 jugs of water like this every day.... On their down time they collect wood and look after their siblings.|
|And of course here we have a casual vista on the way back to the house...|
|More soccer! In this village we played girls vs guys|
|And another snack time :)|
|That finished off with passionfruit creme brulee|
And now for some pictures of random stuff:
|A school we visited (not the one that I am teaching at)|
|And of course some random chickens...|
|Three volcanoes in the background and the foundation for a new home in the foreground|
|Do you see that plume of smoke right there? That my friends is an active volcano!|
And finishing with a bit more casual scenery:
