Campo is country in Spanish. Today each training group (Kevin is Sustainable Ag and I am Conservation Education) went on a trip to visit a PCV (Peace Corps Volunteer) at thier assigned communities. One 2+ hour rear-end numbing Land Rover ride later (I had my first grip the seat moment..but all is good Moms) we arrived. We got to:
see some school children do a local dance for us,
climb a mountain (hot, steep, got blister, beautiful) & eat lunch (they serve too much to guests), plant tree seeds,
and work (read play) in mud to aid in building a new room on a house (mud/grass wall building technique)
It was a good day and I am tired. Kevin also had a good day, but he seemed a bit jealous when he heard about all that our group did. He did get to plant rice though. Yup, they grow rice in Panama, more about that in the future I am sure.
Tomorrow we head to a new training site and start living with host families (that means mucho espanol por Abril). I don't expect to have internet access for a couple of weeks...so be patient. (for those who are counting - I certainly am) I have now had 2 shots and a blood draw. More shots to come. Arg. That will tell some of you just how much I want to be here.
Love to all.
