Half way Done

Santiago, Chile

We have just finished out 4th day in Chile and the time has blown by. We have been having some amazing experiences. Today, we went and did a service project for a girls "orphange" and it completely opened my eyes. The sad part is that we were not able to complete our project due to lack of tools. We cleaned off a basketball court and tried to replace the backboards and rims, but did not have the necessary tools to put the new hoops up. Therefore the girls have a clean court and no rims to play on. I think the VE Global volunteer group will be going to complete the project soon.

I am really looking forward to the netx few days because we will be having some extremely interesting tours including a vineyard and a major port. Unfortunately, our trip on Saturday has been cancelled due to the weather so that was a major disappointment for us all. I really was looking forward to the mine especially because it was the largest underground copper mine in the world, but I guess I will just have to go with the flow and find some other exciting activity to occupy my time.
