Halfway There, Livin’ On a Prayer

17 Mar

I cannot believe this trip is half over.  Where has the time gone?  We have been quite busy between our volunteering and site seeing that the time has just flown way too fast.

Tuesday night we went to AID Atlanta where one of their employees gave us a very informative and thorough presentation on HIV/AIDS and its history, its effects, and the evolvement of treatmens over time.  We then came back and had a late night dinner of make your own breakfast for dinner.  The chocolate chip pancakes were definitely my favorite.

On Wednesday we only worked a half day at Project Open Hand.  We then took some time to be tourists in Atlanta.  We hung out at the CNN World Headquarters, went to the World of Coke (thank you to the Coca Cola Company for giving us free passes!), Centennial Olympic Park, and the Atlanta Underground.  We then had another fine adventure at Walmart (a different one this time) and then cooked a wonderful Mexican feast consisting of quesadillas, beans, rice, and tortilla chips.

It has been an amazing adventure so far.  I think we all have really reflected on the service we have done.  And I know we have certainly bonded with the employees at Project Open Hand… they are all really amazing people.  These few days are ones I will never forget and I am really excited for all that is in store the next few days.
