PARENTS AND FRIENDS – PLEASE POST YOUR COMMENTS AND THOUGHTS AT THE END OF THE BLOG! YOUR POSTS ARE SHARED WITH THE GLIMPSERS AND IT’S A GREAT WAY TO LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE THINKING OF THEM!
Today was like no other, first ever day working like a local. We began our day waking up at 7 am, and as usual walking to Roma Santa to enjoy Isabelle’s most delicious foods. From there we took a field trip to a farm to be greeted by Don Jaime. We began by collecting fertilizer (chicken poop) and potatoes to prepare to plant them. We spent two hours in total to fully experience what it is like to work like a local. We took dozens of photos, and had an amazing experience. At the end of our hard work, we were infinitely thanked by Don Jaime himself. We had the honor to gift Don Jaime a special Global Glimpse handbag. After this miraculous adventure, full of dirt in our faces, we headed back to eat a delightful lunch at Roma Santa.
After getting food in our stomachs we prepared for our second English lesson. We spent an hour or so preparing ourselves to help the students learn English to the best of our abilities. After vigorous prepping, we decided to create helpful posters and games to keep our students engaged. As mentioned in the previous blog the students were prepared to take part in the English tutoring. The students were fully engaged and had a wonderful time while learning much of the English language. The games with flashcards we prepared had them learning the family tree by the end of our time with them. Tutoring gave us an appetite which led us to Roma Santa. There we ate pasta Alfredo and were introduced to a special surprise known as karaoke at dinner. Ramon, Jax, and Lencho ended the special night with their beautiful voices (singing Mexican music, frozen songs, and more). Finally ending the day by passing on the torch to the next leaders!
