Excerpt of Journal Entry Day 1:
"Today was one of the best days of my life!
Both times on the plane I had a window seat next to the right wing.
On the plane we flew right thru a cloud!
I got to see the cockpit!
We looked for the volcano, but we couldn't see it.
Dad bought me the book "Hunger Games"
Our room came with 2 beds, one green and one red.
Also a personal bathroom.
The toilets don't fill up and then drain.
They just drain.
By the food area there is an alligator pond and a creaky bridge that leads over it.
There are 2 ways to get to our room from the eating area.
You can go down 257 uneven steps or take the bus.
Today was very much fun! I miss you guys."
A note from Jenny:
Four days before the team left for Guatemala, there was a volcano eruption there.This was not close enough to the area they planned to serve, so it did not inhibit the teams' trip. Those who were going
knew they might be able to see the volcano from the plane. Unfortunately, they didn't see the volcano while airborne. That is what David is referring to in his day 1 entry.
