La Rinconda

After school outing with the staff and teachers


It’s been a long, but short week at school. I can’t believe it’s Friday night already and where did the time go? But then, there were some hours that I thought I wonder if I can make it through the year! I’m going to post about my class another time….school…yes, it’s by job! But I have a life! LOL

The school sponsored a get together after school today. Teachers with cars drove us out to a Resort called La Rinconda. It was about a 20 minute ride from the school. Part of it was on dirt road, and we passed some pretty impressive looking houses, where a lot of our students live….no wonder they are so spoiled! La Rinconda is a beautiful garden with waterfalls, gorgeous flowers and trees, pools to swim in, hammocks to lay in, a restaurant, and a fun zip line. It was so relaxing to wander around, relax, and meet other teachers. The weather has been cool the last few days, and that has been really nice. I hear that winter is almost over. It doesn’t look like winter with all the green here.

We ordered some typical Bolivian snacks. I tried the mashed up plantains mixed with dried jerky and cheese….not really tasty to me. And then the director offered us some mashed potatoes mixed with jerky….another not so favorite thing. But the lemon aide was yummy.
It was really nice to get out of the “city” and see some beautiful parts of Santa Cruz.
