We got emails back from the after school program! Sandy and I will be heading there sometime this week to check the place out, see what they need, and then I'll be able to begin my time volunteering!
I was starting to get a little bored today, so any chance I got, I was out. I watched Toby and Felicity while Albino and Sandy took Doriana to school, then got a little alone time at the house while they took Toby to school. When Sandy came back, she took Felicity and I on a walk down to the exchange house to change my dollars into soles. I was really worried about the condition of my bills (they aren't perfect) but the woman barely looked at them other than to make sure it was all there. We took the long way home and Sandy explained how the bus system works and what would be best for me. It was a lot to take in but I think I'm finally ready to take these things on by myself!
After going with to pick up Toby from school and lunch, I watched him and Felicity again while everyone else was away, and even had a little time to watch tv.
Tomorrow, Albino, Sandy, and I are headed to a different village about an hour away (I'm terrible at remembering names) for some business. While they take care of that, I'll be able to explore the area on my own a little bit, which I'm excited about. Maybe this time I'll remember my camera!
If there is enough time when we get back, I'll be heading to the store! (A girl can only use a travel size toothpaste for so long! ;)
Pictured below are soles! The coin is worth 5 soles.
