El banjo y el tio
Fun day at Panecillo school. I´m shepherding through a visa application for a Tandana volunteer and needed some signed letters from the director of the school. Last time up there, some students had invited me to come sit in on English class, so I did. Our new friend Kent (we´ve dubbed him Tio (uncle) Kento) and I bussed up, did our work (see photo,¨"This Land is Your Land" was a hit), and then walked down to the bus stop. While waiting, a passing pickup took us on (photo) and refused our payment offer. Fun.
Another day el Tio and I biked out to the medical clinic where Kent´s project is centered. When there´s a friend to ride with, there can be pictures of me on the blog! Also very fun.
And Kent turned 25 on Thursday, so we feted him at breakfast (with a rousing "Happy Birthday" and a candle in a stale roll) and at a fancy dinner (photo). Very fun for all, including the girls having a 4th person to speak English to.
