We spent the day in the bus traveling in to the more rural areas at the base of the mountain - it took seven hours! We sang Christian music in Spanish and played some games. It was a great way for the team members to interact and bond with each other. Of course, we hit some rainstorms as we got closer to the mountain. Just about 10 minutes away from our destination, we hit a point in the road that the bus couldn't make it through due to its weight and being so close to the ground. Locals came to our aid and made a makeshift ramp...of course that only worked after everyone got off the bus!
The adventures are just beginning!
