We’ve been in San Juan since Saturday afternoon staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites. It’s pretty nice, I’m not gonna lie. I’ve really enjoyed sleeping in a nice bed and keeping the room freezing cold and having a hot shower and all the other creature comforts I’m used to. But I’d give it all up again for World Changers in Puerto Rico or anywhere else. It was hard at first not having those things, but I got used to it after a few days.
We basically went from training at the of May through last Saturday without stopping. A full month of long days and short nights with lots of work. It was draining physically, emotionally and spiritually. By the third project, I had basically given up on caring for the week. I realized that I wasn’t into the last week and I tried to overcome that, but I just couldn’t get past my funk. But I made it through the week and I got my work done and the week ended amazingly. Having a few days off has been very refreshing for all of us.
Today and yesterday we went to Old San Juan. I was in a bad mood yesterday, but today was much better. The girls (and Brian) wanted to go in every shop to look at everything, without buying anything, and that really got to me yesterday. Today we split up and I went with Meg and Courtney and the pace was much easier because they had already seen everything and were shopping for more specific things. They also let me make some decisions and involved me more than I was yesterday. Plus I had my camera today so I was taking pictures of everything. I took 180ish pics today. Very few of people, mostly of things. I don’t like taking people pictures; things are much more interesting to me to photograph.
That’s about it for the night. I’m going to go hang out in the lobby and people watch and read for a little while before going to bed.
