Vanderbilt SB Recap

Two weeks ago we were hosts to our first Spring Break groups of the year. While Erik and Chet were busy leading Duke around in Lumbisi, Mike and I were keeping track of the Vanderbilt group. Our week was packed with morning activities in Quito, afternoons in the Centro, and an overnight trip to Mindo. Our group was able to accomplish a lot in their short week here, including painting the big room upstairs (the "auditorium," if your name is Chet), fixing up the garden for the Alinambi nutrition program, leading Women's Exercise, and getting to participate in all of the other educational programs that we offer. Here is a brief recap in pictures (courtesy of the Vanderbilt girls)...

Painting the big room a nice shade of celeste (contrary to photographic evidence, the room is NOT lavender.)
