I have made it to camp and today was exhausting, the metro to the bus to the train, to another correct train, to a car ride! Wooo and once we got here we got a quick orientation. We met Ricardo the horse trainer, because part of camp here is helping with the childrens wellness through…equestrien stuff? we were also pretty much told for the next two weeks we will be watching people, and after that we will havea group of kids, around 15 who we are expected to be their counslers, mothers, teachers, and psycologists…should be interesting but we are supposed to be inspiring children so they believe they can do anything! that seems like a cool idea.
Housing here is definitely interesting, we have 2 rooms for 8 of us, and we have a mini kitchen/bathroom! yes that means we have to poop in our kitchen…its about to get wierd! The monitors(spanish counslers) show up in the next few days and we will get paired up with them…oh and noone here speaks English, in fact many of them dont speak Spanish, they speak Catalan. I will be picking up languages quickly but i may have no idea what language that might be! I have realized I do actually understand Spanish really well which is cool, now I just need to work on speaking it! Oh plus we have all healthy food, natural ingredients and all that good stuff. Plus there are rock walls, pools, some kinda “indiana jones” park in the woods, its like a Kathleen playground which I will be watching children have fun on…I donno about that!
Ok since I am hogging the only computer I will get off now, but I am safely in the woods/farm (it looks similar to vermont) Updates to come as we get more info!
