Today was excursion day. In the morning we all boarded a boat in front of our hotel and traveled across the lake to Panajachel where we played a game that the Fotokids staff had devised. In the afternoon, we visited another town traveling by pickup truck. Upon return some of us stretched screen fabric on frames in preparation for tomorrow’s screen printing workshop.
I like a lot to work with people speaking different languages. It was fun, like a game. Also I liked taking photos as part of the “Amazing Foto Race” game. We can’t always take photos in a fun way. Normally it’s homework.
It’s been a long time since I did a photo scavenger hunt, but I liked it because it was fun. I liked learning how to build the screen printing frames because it will serve me well in the future. It was difficult to learn but we are all learning together.
I liked going on a boat to Panajachel and play the “Amazing Foto Race” game. We weren’t in our normal groups and had to speak 3 languages between the group. And we had to speak with strangers, including those at the bank. I also liked riding in the pickup truck. That was really cool. And we saw landscapes we hadn’t seen before.
After returning to Santiago I had the chance to use the sauna this afternoon. When I stepped out I felt like I was 15 again. [ed. Camilo is 18]
