Hogar Miguel - Day 3 [Blog]

by Xander Bevilacqua

Today was a good day; we woke up and had a typical breakfast which was black beans with eggs and oatmeal, sided with some fruit.

Then I got to the orphanage and started painting superheroes on the boys’ walls. The boys seemed really fascinated by me painting and excited to see their home being renovated and repainted.

When I finished the spiderman mural, the children began to jump up and down in excitement. It was a really satisfying feeling. That was the highlight of my day.

I made some friends, although I speak no Spanish- sometimes a child will come into the room and yell something in Spanish then run out. Leaving me confused, but it is funny.
