Day 4

Today was a very emotional day. It was our last day with the kids and visiting the school. When we got there, everyone was busy preparing for the inauguration ceremony. The students from the school performed traditional Chilean dances and we performed a hip-hop dance.  Steph then gave a speech on our experiences these past three days. She did a great job representing our group. After that we had a little bit of time to take pictures with the kids and the garden. We then had a delicious “asado” with the children, parents, teachers, and representatives of ecological organizations that worked with us. After that, it was time to say goodbye. It was a great experience to spend these with the kids and I think we speak for all of us that they have truly touched us. After an emotional farewell, it was time to go to the wilderness. We drove for about an hour down to Siete Tazas and did a one hour hike. As we started our hike, we met up with these American kayakers (that were really hot) and greeted them. They are five minutes away, but we are prohibited from coming even close to the hostal they are staying at. At the moment, we are cooking dinner and just having a great time.

Hoy día fue un día muy emocional. Fue nuestro ultimo día con los alumnos y visitando el colegio. Cuando llegamos, todos estaban ocupados preparando para la inauguración del huerto. Los estudiantes del colegio presentaron bailes típicos de Chile. Nosotras hicimos un baile the hip-hop. Steph duspues hablo acerca de nuestras experiencias en este paseo. Ella hizo un trabajo excelente en representar a nuestro grupo. Eso fue seguido por un delicioso asado y un poco de tiempo para tomar fotos con los alumnos y el Nuevo jardin ecológico. Finalmente fue hora de despedirse de nuestros nuevos amigos. Fue una gran experiencia y creo que todos disfrutamos mucho nuestro tiempo con los chicos. Despues de nuestra despedida emocional nos fuimos a Siete Tazas. Nos tomo una hora para llegar y hicimos una expedición de una hora. Al empezar nuestra expedición, nos encontramos con unos alumnos americanos. Quedan seis minutos del hostal donde estamos y lo tenemos prohibido acercarse al hostal donde ellos están. Por ahora, estamos cocinando nuestra cena y divirtiéndonos mucho.
