Supporting the local economy
Today we were on our own for adventure. My adventure (and most of the other students, too) included a trip to the mercado (market) where we supported the local economy. Decisions, decisions, decisions! I also went with a few faculty to a coffee plantation and learned all about how coffee is made and went this morning to the textile museum where I learned all about how the beautiful native clothing is made. There's not a day that goes by that I don't learn a lot here!
Tomorrow I leave and I am sad that I will be missing the second week of service here. Many thanks to the 300+ people who are catching our posts...that's EXACTLY what Cortney and I wanted to accomplish: bringing this experience to the KCUMB campus family, to our alumni and to our family and friends.
