The following post features student writing.
There is no better way to spend the last day in Iltaqui than with the whole community. Despite the two-hour delayed start, the fesitivites quickly took off with a volleyball game between us and the locals. The games were close, but we won both games. We enjoyed our fresh pork for lunch and shared it with the community. The festivities continued with a traditional dance with all of us joining together, as well as performances by the locals who demonstrated another traditional dance—after which we performed the Macarena. To end our celebration, everyone put their handprint on the newly renovated community center. Later in the night we traveled to Otavala for a nice dinner to celebrate the end of our community service work.
