School field trips mark the end of term

In the final week of term children from rural communities Huayrapungo and Muenala planned a school trip. All 30 children from Muenala, alongside parents and volunteers headed out for a day trip to Cielo Verde in the Intag region just outside of Otavalo. An early start and clearly excited children we all head out into banana and coffee country. A lovely day was had by all, swimming in the local rivers and hot springs, and being invited by the local community to share their fruit crops - the kids will be enjoying plenty of bananas and papayas for next few weeks.

The Huayrapungo community decided it was time to head south to Mindo and enjoy the cascadas there. A feast of potatoes, broad beans, mejoco (from the potato family), corn tostadas, chili, and cuy (guinea pig) was enjoyed by all before heading down to visit the local waterfalls. The kids, mums and dads and volunteers all enjoyed splashing around and cooling off before clambering back, tired and exhausted, on the bus home.
