Hey Family and Friends,
Today’s trip was to a plantain farm called MANA. We woke up at 6:00 and ate breakfast on the bus at 7:00. When we got there, we learned about the farmers, and their life styles as well as their struggle, for example the farmers have to rely on the weather for irrigation. We then walked a little across some streams to the farm, where we started weeding the landscape. We saw some baby tarantulas (Not poisonous), which gave us quite a scare. After the rather strenuous weeding session, we got back on the WAWA (bus) with Giovanni, and headed back to CONAMUCA to have lunch and get ready to teach our future ENGLISH SPEAKERS!! After having some Jitter Bugs in our stomachs (Not literally) we all ended up having one of our best classes we have had so far at the school we are teaching at. After class ended at 6:00 pm we had a 45 minute class prep time and used it as a valuable time to prep for the next class which is this coming Friday.
After leaving the school we returned back to CONAMUCA were we had our last meal of the day aka DINNER which is mostly everyone’s favorite part of the day. Also as we all know by now the beautiful CONAMUCA staff always cooks the best meals for us and we appreciate them all the time and also enjoy messin and joking around with Santos the only male staff member of CONAMUCA. Furthermore to conclude the end of the day which was pretty pack with all the driving and working we did and can say for all that we all learned something new and have a new mindset on today’s trip that we can take back to the states.
