|Us and Damian|
After eating two lunches (one with Damian and another with CETHA), we headed back to Cochabamba. Gabe was so kind to drive us there and to La Paz rather than us having to ride a bus. But before we left, the students and professors prepared a goodbye and thank you speech for us. It was a very sweet moment. We couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity! We gained just as much from this experience as they did, and we are so thankful for it!

Highlights of our post-project free week in Bolivia:
Ate ice-cream at Dumbo's! To sum that place up, it's like a miniature Chuck E Cheese, minus arcade games.
Visited Cristo de la Concordia (Jesus Christ statue). It's the largest statue of Jesus in the world!
Bought items for our upcoming benefit dinner (they're some awesome items, so be pumped!)
Gabe brought us to a delicious French restaurant. It was one of those places you dress up for, but we went in our traveling clothes. :)
Took a tour to Tiwanaku (Pre-Incan Civilization Ruins)
Wes and Kia left back to the states two days early :(. It was odd saying that we only had 5 people whenever we would get a taxi or go out to eat.
Explored parks and plazas around the city

We will give more updates when fall semester starts again. Until then, have a wonderful summer!
