That night, we were trying to decide what to do the next day. Andres was a huge help to us and found a canopy tour that we decided to do. We had a great weekend off and were all anxious to start our work on Monday.
When we arrived at the site, we were introduced to the friendly staff and put to work right away. My job was to plaster the new classrooms that were being built. In the afternoon, I got to interact with the children. They read their books to me and I would correct them or help them with a word when needed.
I also had the opportunity to help an older lady that was learning English. Interacting with her was also a completely different experience with the kids because she needed my help a lot more and I could give it to her.
After a long day at work, we would come home to an amazing meal prepared by Dona Isabel. The food here is absolutely amazing. I am allergic to onion so Dona Isabel would prepare a separate meal just for me.
The uVolunteer staff is wonderful. Everyone we met helped us in a huge way. Even the people that were staying at the dorm with us helped, in an enormous way. I am so thankful for the opportunity and could not have a better spring break.
