I spent my Easter holidays in Bolivia and saw a lot of this country: Santa Cruz, the cloud forest in the Andes, where we were hunting one day, or the desert, where we were running in the sand, but don’t expect a description of a typical holiday now.
I also saw how people live there…
I had the chance to travel with a German group, 10 young persons and Thomas, our guardian. We went there to support the project Saalfeld Samaipata , which provides children’s homes with bread and helps the children to get a good school education. Education is important for those children to leave their life in poverty and crime behind … unfortunately lots of street children there are criminal or deal with drugs to make a living.
It was a good feeling to see the children were happy to see us. We did a lot of things together , and I learned a lot about their life. This experience has taught me to appreciate our way of living more… not everybody is a lucky as we are and lots of children need our help.
I see the world with different eyes now and I will never forget that trip.
