Thank you for visiting one of our GLA Program Blogs! Here are a few things you can expect:
1. We typically receive 1-2 Blog Posts Per Week from international staff. It is very unlikely programs will send blog updates daily.
2. Blog Updates sent on weekends may be delayed until Monday morning.
3. Due to many factors including internet accessibility, photos may not always be available to post onto the blog. Sometimes staff are only able to send text.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

On the second day of working on the bottle house we have started to cement over the bottles, which acts as insulation. During lunch we played baseball with the locals and then continued our work on the bottle house. Today was the last day our group worked on the house and we have learned a lot from the experience and the community. We are looking forward to the rest of the week and the experiences to come!

This morning, most of us woke up for a morning yoga session before a fun day of snorkeling. After breakfast, we took the bus to a supermarket then to Sosua for snorkeling. After that, we headed back to the beach for pizza and coconut water or virgin pina coladas. We went shopping then headed over to Playa Alicia before returning to the Lodge for free time until Taco Night! After dinner we had a group lecture and activity regarding leadership and worked on our capstone projects that we will present at the end of the week. Tomorrow we start working on Global Health!
