Today we road in the back of a pick-up truck to a village high in the mountains that has a ceramic cooperative. We enjoyed a traditional meal in the little house there, surrounded by banana trees (PHOTO 1). We also tried our hands at working with the clay (PHOTOS 2 and 3); Maria made it look much easier than it was for us (PHOTO 4). After we left we drove to the local public school - 71 students in 4 grades with 1 teacher - and gave a pencil to each child, thanks to Sharon and Bernadine (and maybe others, not sure who contributed, PHOTO 5). Like the others, an eventful day.
