Election Day Trip to the Park

This Sunday is election day in Bolivia. It is a day with no transportation (since last night actually), and all adults are required to vote. No meetings may take place today either so that means no church. Rather than staying inside all day, the oldest five from the baby home and I went to the park! We stopped at the store to buy ice cream first and then headed down the street to the park. When we first arrived, no one was there yet so we had the whole park to ourselves. It was great! With such warm weather, it wasn't long before others came over to play too. 

I think you can see from their faces that we all had a fun time! We got lots of stares, smiles, and questions in the street, some probably due to the fact that they were walking in a line saying "Chugga chugga choo choo!" They behaved really well and have already asked when we get to go back… Hopefully soon!
