It’s really amazing how much work we have accomplished this week in the community. We had a great break today and it was very different than any other days we’ve had so far. Today, we went rafting! I, like everyone was a bit nervous because a majority of us have never been rafting. My biggest fear was falling off the raft, but the instructors were very precise on showing us what to do if we fell off. I volunteered to jump in the water and let me tell you, it was the coldest water I have ever been in. Once we left the launch I was amazed by the experience. The rapids and water took us through a beautiful scenery very quickly! Everyone was having a great time and getting soaked. My boat finished last, but the experience was one that none of us will ever forget. The Chota river will be filled with unforgettable memories. Tomorrow we start the Minga, which I don’t know what it is, but I expect it will be fun!
