Walmart Honduran Style
Seivert is right, we are sitting at the Mall right now. Pretty much everyone has purchased new underwear, since our clothes were left in Vallecillo, and some have gotten a new shuirt to wear. Though we are not in an ideal situation, everyone is having a great time doing a little bargain hunting. Sr. Renae just showed me her new red rubber shoes. The guys showed me their baseball shirts, purchased for $5, and their brightly colored flowered shorts. Believe me, it will be quite the fashion show at the hotel in San Pedro Sula. Many of the students have volunteered to be in the last group to return. I think they just want to miss more school. We had a great breakfast at the hotel. McDonalds was our restaurant of choice for lunch. We haven't even thought of supper yet, but I'm sure we'll be well-fed. I'm going to attempt a photo upload from the Mall so you can see how totally relaxed we all are. I couldn't be more happy with the behavior of the students at this point. They are enjoying their new adventure, and our taxi group decided to name this year's mission project Task Force Agua - similar to Task Force Bravo, the military operation that did a health study and clinic in Montana de la Flor. NOTE: The Gehlen students want Miss Rogers to know that her Spanish phrases, such as 'so much smoke' are finally coming in handy!
