Mariposa: Day 3

Today we started off with a breakfast of eggs, sausage, fried cheese, and a traditional breakfast food called mangu. We then proceeded to fill holes in a road with rocks so that there would be a safe passage way to school. After this, we spent time with a Dominican family and were warmly welcomed into their home. Three of their young female family members were very social, and despite the language barrier we were able to form relationships with them. After another wonderful meal consisting of rice, beans and pasta, we traveled to the local school. We interacted with many of the younger children and played simple games in order to teach them English. One thing that I learned today was that not everyone has the benefit of receiving an education, and having too much homework is much less of a problem than having none!    Gretchen '17
