44 - Santa Ana Nichi --Dec 10

Boot Camp for Teachers in
Santa Ana Nichi
The view of the pueblito
It is nice to be back in the country
We stay up together lesson planning, its so fun to have companeros to plan with.
Our kitchen, we have alot of people who like to cook, so every night, someone makes a soup or salad for everyone, its been really fun!
Then, sometimes the electricity just goes out, and we plan by flashlights...
..or for 5 of the 6 days we dont have water, so we flush toilets with buckets, and wash dishes with buckets..
..but we try to stay in good spirits and played gestures in Spanish, that made it a really hard game.
Then the excitment of the night, was KK breaking a chair, the second chair of her MX trip :)
Trying to stay warm in the kitchen...
..or by break dancing..
..then KK, fell in a hole when we were walking..
..eating "elotes"  so yummy!

P.E. My class and i played futbol.
Sometimes, its hard to keep your eye on everyone, I turned around and the kid had covered his face with chalk.
We played memorama, to learn different job types
The students with their parnters
The hardest night for me, the people in the village kneeling before Mary and praying to her.

ahhh, you all look so cold!  The kids are so cute, the boy with the chalk on his face is hilarious.

Awesome pictures of Altacomulco and especially of Santa Ana Nichi!  It was really unfortunate that I could not be there to share in the experience, but thanks to your pictures at least I got an idea of what it was like.  Thanks so much for posting them!
