Location: Santa Cruz, Galapagos

Today we breakfasted on eggs in a basket, and then departed for our service project with the local park service. It is currently the equivalent of summer vacation in the Galapogos, and they provide summer camps for the kids. We spent the morning with ten year olds, making beaded key-chains and playing soccer. The kids were amazing, funny, outgoing, and even though I don’t speak Spanish their enthusiasm and happiness transcended language. Many of us played soccer against them, and were quickly shown how behind we were, I was falling everywhere in the goal, and Altman managed to trip just before he scored and kick the ball in the opposite direction. Afterwards some returned to the boat for lunch, while others stayed to enjoy another free afternoon in Puerto Ayoraandlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
