Nine of our team members stayed in the barrio while the rest of the team went on to Lima and Machu Pichu. Friday we went to a special needs school where we put on a puppet show, played games and worked on crafts. We were able to feed about 150 people. The kids and their parents were so excited and grateful as no one had ever done anything like this for them. It was also very fulfilling for the team.
After lunch we painted some of the class rooms. Most of the paint was oil base so it doesn’t come off easily and of course we had it all over ourselves!
Saturday some of us went to Chan Chan in celebration of Peru’s Independence Day. We bought souvenirs and relaxed after our week of working so hard.
