Reunited! - Monday, June 9, 2008

Amy F.
Monday June 9th:
This morning we got up and went to Patrona’s for breakfast then we walked around and went to the bank where we exchanged our money for quetzals. After we were done with that we went to meet the students at the school. Their music class or band was playing (kind of like a concert) and when they finished their songs they lined up and we walked as they played a drum roll. The teachers were introduced and then we were introduced to the whole school, everyone clapped and cheered for us. The students were dismissed to their classes and we were given a tour of the school. We walked around from room to room and meet the students, as soon as we walked into a room the class started singing to us. After we meet a couple of classes we decided that we should sing some songs that we knew to them, we went back and forth singing to each other until we left. After we left the school we went to meet the people that we would be doing the mural with. The last thing we did that day was go to the hotel and wait for the rest of the group to come, when they finally got there we were all so excited and couldn’t wait to tell our stories to each other. Before we went to bed all the kids and Sara I. had a meeting about what we should do for the mural, it was a very exciting and productive day.
