Community Service Day
Today is a nation-wide community service day. Everyone throughout the country participates in giving back in some way so we have been helping the students of the village in their service activities (weeding, cleaning). We've really been able to spark up great conversations with all the kids here as we work. (They've learned the slang word, "slacking off" from us while we learned history from them). It's just tempting to talk rather then work when you're in the presence of such positive energy. We may be really tired, but we are put to shame when we see how much these kids work. They even got up for a 6am run this morning!
After lunch, we are now going on a hike. Apparently the scenery will be spectacular!
