This was outside of the airport. We had to get through all of those people to get to our bus.
The first night we wrapped about 500 Christmas presents to take to some of the orphanages that we were going to visit and for a village Christmas party.
On Tuesday we visited an home for special needs adults. These guys were a lot of fun.
I felt pretty good about this home. It was a little run down in parts but not too bad and the residents looked like they were well taken care of. After lunch in town we went to an orphanage for children with AIDS. We weren't able to take any pictures in there, but the children were sweet and seemed to enjoy us. We had cake and a piñata. I didn't get to see inside of the home because we were outside, but it seemed ok as well.
On Wednesday we visited a home for special needs children. Most of these children were severe and profound. We danced with them and had cake and made balloon animals. They seemed to enjoy us too. In here we weren't to take many pictures either so I won't post any. The home used to be run by nuns so it was fairly nice. In the afternoon we went to a boys orphanage for boys ages 12-17. This place was pretty run down and used to be a prison.
I will write tomorrow about building houses in the village and the fun we had at the Christmas party and at the beach.
