And yet somehow, some way, this camp is important to many of the campers. I think it might be this: The fact that a group of Americans come down to spend two weeks with them, to make spaces for them to play, adds to their self worth I think. In their minds they must be important if we take time out of our lives to be with them. Or something like that.
That, and the playground came out amazing. Here's some pictures. And then we are off to the capital with all the teen leaders for an afternoon of museums (our idea), playing in the Fortaleza (their idea), some souvenir shopping and then dinner. See you stateside.
