The past two days we have built stoves for two different women and their families. We built them from the bottom by making our own cement, stacking cinder blocks and bricks, and layering dirt and sand to create each stove. It was an awesome learning experience for everyone and opened our eyes to a completely different world than we are used too. The stoves are important to these families and we are proud to have bad the opportunity to make a difference. Today, we traveled up the mountain sides to a place called "Fuentes Georginas," the hot springs. We could not go any higher in altitude and were basically in the clouds! We got to relax in the steaming hot water and eat an American lunch! All 10
students enjoyed a cheeseburger and fries! We are excited to venture to an erupting volcano tomorrow where we will be hiking up in the morning. Buenos noches!
