Los Chiles, Akins Trip – Post #3

Our journey continues… Although we speak different languages, being a kid is a universal language.  When our Winter Park kids play with the community kids, the community kids just light up with joy. All of our Winter Park kids are trying to practice their Spanish with the community members. We got a bit of a surprise the other day:  when we were installing the water meters, Kent had had told us that there were only 5 water meters that we had to install – there were actually FIFTY. Kent had made an error in translation. Ha!  Weather-wise, it is either very hot and humid or rainy and muggy – much like Central Florida, but the rain can cycle in and out multiple times/day. More of the donated shoes from our kind Orlando friends were given to children who lived around the work sight. They were so excited!
