This quick 1 day, 2 night trip was exactly what we needed! A break from all the typical classwork we've been doing in Barranquilla and another adventure into the public school system! We encountered very energetic students and teachers for the most part which is very encouraging for the work that we'll be doing. So about 9 out of our group of 23 will be following up the work that the Response Volunteers have been doing and the rest will be starting our own programs in January. Stay tuned for lots more about that later. As for now, just look at the pretty pictures:
And, it was a good friend's birthday, so of course we made some time to learn a little bit about the night life in Cartagena too!
