Today we ventured out to hike up El Cerro Gordo, a mountain on the coast which served as a lookout for pirates back in the day. We were able to see more of La Herradura and the neighboring countryside (plus some mountain goats!). Our reward was to eat our picnic near the sea. After the picnic, we learned about the importance of recycling and the ways in which many hands make light work when it comes to beach cleanup. We adventured back into town, loaded up on waffles and coffee and laughed until our rib cages hurt. At the coffee shop, we had our nightly circle in which we reflected on the teachings from the day and dove deeper into some challenging concepts such as the pros and cons of tourism, gentrification and urbanization. The girls then got some free time to explore on their own and met up with their host families at 8. What a full day!
One thought on “Unas caminatas por los cerros.”
Beautiful countryside Haley! Looks like you are enjoying the trip!
