Tierra Linda celebration

We rounded the corner about a mile above Tierra Linda and were greeted at the overlook by several hundred children, men and women. They were all dressed in their traditional clothing and so excited to see us. Their marching band then paraded us down to the school for the official opening of the new roof. A marimba band, the marching band, numerous student dance groups and dignitaries from every possible organization including the army entertained us under the new roof. Each Paso member was presented with a gift and the official ribbon cutting ceremony highlighted the day for the community. Valentines made by Warminster and Mnjikaning schools were then exchanged with the Tierra Linda classes. A meeting with the teachers was followed by a traditional lunch of chicken, rice and salad. Paso members then had a meeting with two of our sponsored students before heading back down to Panajachel.
