The Laos Trip is Taking Off!
The 15 Laos trippers met bright and early this morning and are excited for their trip! They have been preparing by researching the places they will go, preparing activities to teach the school children and practicing an amazing song and dance to entertain the villagers where they will stay. They are looking forward to many things: teaching the school children, going to the waterfall, fully experiencing the Laotian culture and learning how it is different, and seeing if they can help in the long-term. While they look forward to a great deal of fun and reflection, they also know there will be challenges. Most notably, the language barrier and spending time in the home and village with families from a different culture. Spirits are high and smiles bright despite the early morning flight- Luang Prabang here we come!
