Liberation

20140507_164638.jpgYesterday we went to a village called Liberation. Krissie explained this was essentially the projects. The government had uprooted a community that lived along the ocean because they intended to clean up and commercialize the coast. I think this was in 2010 but the coast is not particularly tidy yet. Those living in Liberation are now packed together, living on top of each other, often a family of 15 in just one small apartment. We went with the mission group up to the village. The group repainted the clinic, while Krissie Graham and I visited with her friends Wilfren and Rodelvis at Wilfren's family's Colmado (corner store). They laughed at how white people all look the same and taught us (laughed at us again lol) more Spanish. Rodelvis even gave me a short ride on his Moto! They are super lovely and we'll probably play Uno with them on sunday. 20140507_161819.jpg
