volunteering in Salasaca day 2

March 15, 2011 at 7:29 pm Leave a comment

Day two of volunteering went a lot better than the first. I have only positive feelings about the Katitawa school, the 20+ children who attend look really happy, and the volunteers all appear well-intentioned. It also seems I’m the only sour apple on the tree. Most of all I love being around the Salasacan people, who smile often and offer their help earnestly when I’m lost, who wave from trucks and greet me joyfully. I love the mountains, the views, the farms and the animals that surround me. So I will stay… at least until the weekend and see if I can find some way to feel productive. If you’d like to read more about the school see this blog, written by a previous volunteer along with excellent pictures.
