Wondering how we’re doing down here?

DAY ONE:  We were super-busy taking in everything our host city had to offer today, and adjusting to the altitude, so here’s a little picture collage to sum it up:


Ms. Hesse and Nestor standing on the rooftop of Casa Victoria.


Chefs Jason, Dan and Nestor cooking up our locally-sourced breakfast.


Cindy and Liliana in Plaza Grande.


Taina, Colton,  and Aidan standing in front of a well known memorial.


Global To Local’s donations to Casa Victoria; amazing how our hard work and dedication is making a different.


Aboya and Mr. Harvey


Brendin and Alejandro taking a break from the heat.
