April 14th – 15th

International Block Learning Trip - London & Toronto HANDS Team:

So Mr. Lammers came up to me at circle time and reminded me I was writing the blog today. Which is totally ok with me, except that we both realized I stayed at the base, the entire day, sick. Mr. Lammers decided ‘oh well!’ I could write about church on Sunday and then we both realized that I hadn’t been there either. So here it goes, this is what I’ve heard about the last few days. :)

April 14th :

While everyone was at church on Sunday I slept and slept some more. Everybody went out for Chinese food and brought Yvonne and I some back. The rest of the group attended Mario’s church and I’ve heard the music and air conditioning were both amazing. Later we went to the mall to get wifi so we could contact home, we headed to the beach straight from there. Instead of the tourist beach we went to on Saturday, we visited a public beach instead.

April 15th:

Today Zoe, Henry and I stayed back and the rest of the group visited Pena de Horeb to continue the construction work. I’ve been told they moved bricks and many wheel barrows full of dirt and gravel to make a pathway. It was a super hot day and most people were glad to get back to the base to have a cold shower
