school’s out for the volunteers

Volunteering is new to me, and I’m generally a little scared of kids. They always seemed so demanding. But these children in Huancayo are usually quite sweet and appreciative. I did grow fond of them (espesh Vanessa in the striped sweater) as the week went by. As volunteers, we taught them very basic english vocab. Not sure how much they actually learned from us. I actually think I learned more from them—mostly that I have to be less of a pushover. For reals. (Also check out how the voluntarios all have the same haircut now. The Dalai Lama look is a raging trend these days.)

  1. Well I guess Davidson must have joined in the same ranks as the voluntarios–with the haircut a la Dalai Lama.
