Today was our first day building in El Florido, Mexico. Myself and 10 others built a house the size of a shack for a family. The family seemed very grateful, but it was frustrating not being able to communicate very well with them, as we can’t really speak Spanish… at all!! Being here is an eye-opening experience. Life here is a lot different than what we’re used to. There is garbage everywhere and diseased dogs running about the streets, which really aren’t streets all, more like tire-poppers. The homes here look like they could fall over any second. However, the people here are very friendly and the food here is muy bien (very good). For lunch today, the family we built for fed us chocolate chicken. Yes, I said chocolate chicken. This whole experience has been superb so far… PS HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!
