Refrigerio and Almuerzo
|Tamales to go: Refrigerio #1|
We drove on for a few minutes, picked up a couple more passengers, drove on some more, and picked up the final group, squeezing 14 into our 10 passenger van.
We arrived at our destination and all piled out. Hugs and greetings were shared, then we sat in a circle and the local pastoras led a brief devotion. We went around the circle and shared more greetings. Then it was time for the refrigerio: pupusas!! And coffee.

Twenty minutes later, we started the workshop. It was fun! We sang, we did actions, we talked about the way children learn and developmental stages. For about 2 1/2 hours, participants were engaged in a pretty good exchange of ideas about what works and what does not work with their students. Then, it was time for lunch.

(Marinated beef: lunch)
Then we were done for the day. We piled 20 people into the 10 passenger van. Not kidding. We were full, and we were full.
On Sunday, we went to worship in Los Héroes, and then scooted over to worship at Resurrection Lutheran Cathedral. They were celebrating their 50th anniversary as a congregation. After worship, we had...wait for it...a refrigerio! Bishop Medardo's favorite: tamales. And two little breads. And a cookie. And soda. And forks.
|We ate it all. It was so good.|
