Hey everyone!! This is Charlize and Bridgette, the Lideres del Dia for CAP Day 3. We started our day by waking up at 6:15 (5:30 for us) and we headed to La Tortilla for a delicious breakfast of grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, and avocado. We headed back to the hotel to play some soccer and games while we waited for our bus to come to drive us to Pachamama for our last CAP Day. Once the group arrived at Pachamama we went straight to work in order to complete our projects on time. Some people worked on finishing the construction of the monkey bars and swings, painting the railing for the stairs, and adding final touches on the murals.
After a few hours, we took a break to eat lunch which consisted of chicken, rice, salad, and corn. Even though it was nice to have a break, we were all eager to complete our projects. At around 4:15 pm we finally finished all the aspects of our CAP projects: the sinks, stairs, playground, and murals. The group felt so accomplished by what we created at Pachamama and everyone was filled with overwhelming emotion. Seventeen supporters of Global Glimpse visited Pachamama so they could see first-hand what the community of Llullundongo was like and the results of our CAP. We capped off our time at Pachamama by setting up a piñata for the kids and said our final goodbyes to the community members. Also, Bridgette fell hard so yeah that’s fun :). We got back to the hotel and got dressed up nicely for dinner. However, before going to dinner we had a seminar in which we reflected on our accomplishments and what we could have done better at Pachamama. After that was finished, we headed to dinner at La Tortilla for the last time. We joined tables together and had a big family dinner where we played games such as telephone and 20 questions. Today was full of stress and exhaustion but in the end we all felt so proud of ourselves for creating a sustainable project that kids at Pachamama could enjoy.
PS : we love you guys and miss you guys so much! Can’t wait to see you guys soon!!
Lots of love,
Charlize and Bridgette
