Ostinal - School and Community stuff

25th July

After a very long day of travelling yesterday, we were able to get up relaxed and then find out that breakfast was going to be provided for us, which meant no cooking! The breakfast was a very nice scrambled eggs and toast.

 Shortly after 8 we went along to the school, with the other World Challenge team we met yesterday. Upon arrival we saw the school children put on a show with singing and dancing as today was a festival day. The singing and dancing was quite different to what happens at home during school days.

After the show, we went to the high school to meet with the students where the oldest students were aged 19. The lowest years had about 15 people and the last years only had 3 people in them. At 11, we had lunch which again was really nice. We had chicken and rice with a tomato salsa and tortilla chips. After lunch we went to have a game of football with the students at the school. The game was a great match and we played just like England, taking an early lead and then losing 3-1. The school closed just after the game at about 12, as it was a festival day.

We then left the school shortly after and quickly went to the shops for drinks before having a team meeting. After the meeting, we then did some washing and put up our smelly tents which was followed by going along the beach to do some weeding. The weeding wasn’t very fun as most of us were bitten by sand ants. When finished, we went back to our resting point here we had a really nice paella.

Hope all is well at home.
