Building Day 1 – Mexico August 2009
I am sure you are wondering about this picture!!! Please read on…Today was a busy day filled with anticipation, excitement, hard work, good times with new found friends, the taco stand, and a special treat, THE MEXICAN CIRCUS!This morning we got off to a late start to our job sites because we had to finish up some orientation. When we arrived at the project sites, it did not take the students long to make up for lost time! It was great to finally meet the family that we are building for as well as the school teachers and children that we are building the classroom for. We are all looking forward to getting to know the locals as much as possible throughout the rest of this week.The taco stand was great as usual. For those of you who have been here before, you know what I mean!The circus was, well, very Mexican! It was fantastic! They really know how to work a crowd, especially a few of the closing acts! They were simply unbeatable. I think my stomach will be sore for hte next few days because I laughed so hard tonight.OK, now for those of you wanting to know more about the picture of the police officer with David in a head lock or if you simply want to see an few more other pictures from today, please check out our Facebook Photo Album by clicking here.
