Our 1st Day at Nutre Hogar
Today is our 1st official day here at Nutre Hogar. But first, before I tell you more about it, I'm going to tell you what we did our first 2 days. On Wednesday, we went to an indigenous village named Emberá. The natives there told us all about their culture and customs, showed us some medicinal plants, shared a meal with us, and they also invited us to do one of their traditional dances with them. It was an educational and life-changing experience! Then, on Wednesday, we went to the Panama Canal and the Santa Clara beach. Most people don’t get to see anything like the Panama Canal, so we were very lucky to see it! We even got to see a boat go through! The beach was nice as well! It was very hot that day and the ocean cooled us off nicely! Now, I'm going to tell you more about Nutre Hogar. All of the kids here are very happy to see us and are really playful! They are all very fortunate to be here because a lot of the kids here in Penonomé aren´t able to get this kind of treatment. If Nutre Hogar wasn't here, these kids wouldn't have the nutrition that they need to live a healthy life. We will try our best to update this daily, so then you know what's going on.
