Meet the Cooks

These two young women are the cooks at 'my' school. They are so cute and so young but also dedicated to feeding the young students in La Palmilla.

The rest of the photos show parts of my two hour round trip to La Palmilla! The dust is not nice and I am looking forward to the rains!!

I have my own school!!

On Tuesday morning I drive for an organization called "Feed the Hungry". The group feeds 4,000 students every school day!!! These are children from the poorest of the poor. Often this is the only meal they get in a day!! To get that meal they must stay in school.
Up until today I have been a driver on call. When needed I was sent to different school each time. ALWAYS an adventure!!
Today I got my very own school. It is the smallest and the poorest that the group supports.
The school is in a tiny dusty poor village called La Palmilla. The roads are washboard at best and the dust is overwhelming. Directions to the school include turn at Abarrotes Lopez, take the split to the left between two other stores etc.. you get the idea!!!
To find out more about this great group please check out the web site.
Some of the things they forgot to mention about driving to my new school can be seen in the pictures!!
OH and Left turn at the Skull!!!
