Philip Goss ’16 and Trevor Hale ’15 celebrate the community that comes with hard work and a good game of baseball:
After being woken up at 7, we headed to the worksite to level the floors and bring more supplies to the next worksite. On the hottest day so far, this task of pouring piles and piles of concrete on the floor of our (almost) house was draining.
However, after we had completed these activities, Jose surprised us with a treat, a fun game of baseball with the locals. We now understand why such a small country has so many players in the MLB. Kids ranging between 4 and 25 came out to play, and it would be an understatement to say we were impressed. 400 yard bombs and impressive catches were far from uncommon. The excitement of the community for this game really showcased the camaraderie of group. All ages came together and enjoyed each other. The sense of community had never been better!

Also, Ms. Cabral sends photographs from the site and from the unfinished water reservoir that Max and Maddie mentioned in their post a few days ago:
