Puerto Rico 3/22/15 – 3/23/15

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Woke up early to meet Brenda to go to the KC airport where we would meet the rest of the group. We all made it to the airport and everything went smoothly. Both flights going to Puerto Rico were fine and we made it to Puerto Rico in good time. We met our coordinator, Hector, and he took us to our lighthouse! The traffic was so bad that we were not able to make it to our lighthouse until after dark. We explored the inside of the lighthouse and it was absolutely beautiful! Later that night, Hector brought us a home cooked Puerto Rican meal that his wife made forĀ us! So delicious!

We all woke up really early to see what outside of our lighthouse looked like! We all took so many pictures and couldn’t believe what an amazing view we had! We did not have to do any service work because it was a holiday in Puerto Rico. Therefore, Hector took us to see some major tourist attractions! We went to Old San Juan and went to a castle! We walked the beautiful cobblestone streets and were in awe over the beautiful architecture of the buildings! We did some souvenir shopping and then went to the El Yunque rainforest! It was raining a little, so the trail was slick, but we hiked in the rainforest to get to a beautiful waterfall! Three of us hiked as far as we could go to get to a main part of the waterfall. It was absolutely gorgeous and the water felt so refreshing after that long hike to get there! After that, we came back and got ready for supper that Hector brought that his wife prepared.
