Let it Rain!

Posted: March 15, 2011 in Volunteer Journals

Thanks Dave for all your hard work on the water catchment system in Bocas del Toro. Read more about his experience.


This morning, with the kids from the school on Isla Solarte, I attended an English competition for students in the Bocas del Toro region. Students from many of the different islands took part in a reading, dictation, spelling, singing, and a poem competition. One keen little girl from our group participated in three events, and won two of them! (not to mentioning placing in the third). During the awards ceremony they kept calling her up to receive more awards (which were big bags of presents), and each time they called her up she looked more embarrassed than the time before. In the end, she won so much stuff that she couldn’t even carry it and had to get a grown up-to help. The smile on her face was adorable.
