GVI Live! 02th August 2013, Bethany
After being here 3 out of my 4 weeks, I’ve decided I’m definitely coming back. My shifts at the Ludoteca have been in the afternoon this week, leaving the mornings free to wander 5th avenue and chill at the beach. This morning me and one of the other volunteers decided to spontaneously go jet skiing which was insane. Although I was sure I was going to die, I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and thrilling experience. In the evenings the best way to unwind from working is with a drink on the beach, last night we went to a bar and were entertained with live music and fire dancers.
After a few weeks we know the kids pretty well and its always great to be greeted with hugs and kisses. My Spanish isn’t great but it really doesn’t matter as its so easy to communicate with them. Tomorrow is carnival day at the Ludoteca and we’ve been working hard all week to make prizes for the games. Its bound to be a fun day. The Ludotecarians are amazing and so devoted to the kids, its so good to get to help them out in anyway we can. They work so hard but still manage to keep a sense of humour.
So excited to see what the final week brings!! Will be so sad to leave the kids when I go, I plan on taking a few of the cutest ones home with me! I”ll also really miss the town and the laid back way of life here.
