Today was an early wake up, 6:00am. For breakfast we had omelettes with a tamarindo drink. After breakfast half of us went shopping for our materials at the hardware store, and half of us went to El Asilo to begin our project. Within three hours we built a path aligned with colorfully painted rocks leading to the chicken house, cleaned the chicken coups, strengthened the fence, and sanded the wood that will eventually be painted. We decided to have our lunch at 1:00 instead of at 12:00 so that we could watch the first half of  the World Cup. For lunch we had two meatballs, rice, a tortilla, a side cucumber salad, and a passion fruit drink in a bag. We got back to work at 2:00pm and left El Asilo at 4:00pm. Once we came back to the hostel, we enjoyed an hour of free time until dinner, which we ate spaghetti, garlic bread, and an oatmeal drink. We got back to the hostel, had our nightly meeting followed by two hours of free time, and will be in bed by 10:00pm.
