Day 9 – Sonsonate / The Ides of March

Today was the fifteenth of March. A beautiful day in El Salvador…..nice….warm…..sunny….and the fact that its my birthday is quite a big factor to the way I’m feeling. Today started off by staying up almost all night on a sugar high. At exactly 12:00 my beautiful friends sang me happy birthday and I felt like the most important girl in the world. After getting back to my room and passing out from exhaustion, we woke back up at 7:50 and ate breakfast. At breakfast I was sung to again by the TCOW group, accompanied by ukulele, and right after, left to go to work! After we finished working away, we started playing Frisbee with the politur (tourist police) and the children. After a bittersweet goodbye we went to eat lunch. Next, I missed out on a walk around Caluco to take Krystal Wagner to the hospital. We thought she had broken, or at least fractured her big toe but instead the doctors believe its just REALLY inflamed. Later we met up with the rest of the group and then we shopped! Lastly, we were invited to Conny Rodriguez’s house to eat dinner and PARTY! After eating our dinner, Lu walks up to me casually with a giant cake with the numbers 1 and 6 as candles. After I blew out the candles , we partied it up like there’s no tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!! We had a live band and everything! I can honestly say, I will remember this birthday for the rest of my life. Thank you El Salvador and God bless everyone.
