Lima, Peru: St. Andrew’s Team – Soccer Games and Ceremonies

Posted in Peru on March 18, 2014

Today we went to the school and we played with the kids. We took them to play soccer and have races just down the road from the school. After getting back to the school, we had an "assembly" of sorts that the school as a whole thanked us for all of the work that we did. The kids embraced us and welcomed us into their community. We exchanged gifts and then went up to the room we worked on and Father Paul blessed the school. We ended the afternoon with a performance by musicians who, after they were done, taught us how to play Peuvian instruments. After dinner, the group went back to the Inka Market and did some shopping.
