Fluoride

Remember this picture from yesterday's post?

This is el Volcán de Agua, 2,336 ft in elevation, it is a stratovolcano located in the department of Sacatepéquez in Guatemala and has been inactive since the mid 16th century. During the rainy season, clouds and fog will get SO THICK that you are unable to see the sleeping giant.


Yesterday while at the Scheel Center, I accompanied the dentist as she went to the neighboring elementary schools to distribute vitamins and give fluoride to each nino y nina. My main job was to take pictures and you KNOW how much of a chore that is for me ;) It was nice though to finally have my camera out and about without much fear. (P.S. I didn't have time to photoshop any of these so they may be a bit grainy)

We gave fluoride to OVER 250 kids!!! It was a very successful morning! Despues, I went to my shift at Casa Jackson where I played with los bebes, Mauricio y Luis y otros. Todos son adorables, PERO babies and I don't mesh so well still. For this reason, I'm going to start working at the schools mainly starting next week.

But now, it is the weekend. And I am going on an adventure!!!
I will surprise you all with pics when I return :) :)
