Did someone say Sunday Fun Day? Today started off bright and early with a ride up the mountains surrounding Constanza to the beautiful monument, Divino Niño (Divine Child) which overlooks the lush green valley of the city. The monument was built by Antonio Manuel Camilo as a means of thanks to the spirit responsible for miraculously curing him of a cancer said to be incurable. The statue took nine months to birth and serves as a home of hope and prayer to those in need. Mr. Camilo explained this to us Glimpsers himself before leaving us to explore the spiritual nature of the monument.
After our visit at the monument, El Divino Niño, we made the decision to hike rather than ride down the mountain and we were rewarded with gorgeous views and luscious landscapes. Although it wasn’t easy we all enjoyed the time we got to spend hiking together and deepening bonds.
Following a delicious meal at our hostile we dared to venture out onto muddy roads and through overgrown foliage via Safari Truck in the hopes of discovering The Rio Arroyazo. After two hours of excitement and windblown hair, we stumbled upon a waterfall along the river which had room enough for all of us to swim. The crystal water while moving quickly downstream was both soothing and invigorating and awe inspiring all the same. In the water, we swam, splashed, and played an intense game of Waa!, the group’s favorite pass-time. The day ended with a light rain to wash us out and welcome us into our warmer clothes and seats on the journey back home.
