November 11- Veterans Day....The group properly remembered its Veterans this morning. It was an auspicious start to the day. We were all properly moved. It should be so because Stan lead the meditation this morning. We plunged into our day. We were organized and on task. We were the perfect representatives of the ideals of MDP. We saw many beautiful children and enjoyed the incredible landscape around San Gregorrio.
The day ended on an extremely high note!!! The 11 decided they needed Parma (ice cream) after a long hard day of good work, and that is when the story changes. We got caught in a terrific rain storm on the way back to the hotel after the clinic. The lightening flashed, the thunder rumbled and the truck just stopped. We were all soaked like rats. We had to depend on the largesse of locals to shelter us from the driving rain. Serves us right as there was some resistance to saying the rosary this morning prior to our departure. Stan really tried to get all of his compradres to dedicate just 17 minutes to recite the rosary....but no, ....we ended up as wet as unwrung dishrags. Amen
Ok this is from Stan... Have fun! I have never been so soaked before.
We are having a great time!
