San Diego Update #1
It was a great first day on the West Coast. Everyone arrived safely to the airport and only one person was slightly delayed, but not a major issue for the group. We drove to the house in Chula Vista and it’s a cozy place with a nice patio seating area. It took some college-level math to figure out the bed situation and we’re all set now. A few of us went grocery shopping and we should be stocked for the week. We enjoyed a spaghetti dinner and discussed plans for the week ahead. Everyone is winding down for the evening.
San Diego Update #2
We had a fun-filled first full day in San Diego. We started bright and early with Border Angles. Half of the group painted rocks to be placed at a cemetery for unidentified persons. Meanwhile, the other half prepared burritos for day laborers for lunch. Then we hopped in our vans and drove to a park to chat with day laborers (in Spanish) and deliver the lunchs and a cold soda. Next, we went to Friendship Park. We walked along the border and the edge of the ocean and enjoyed learning from Enrique of Border Angels. In the evening, we met with a group of immigrants at the African Alliance to hear about their journeys. Tonight’s dinner was yummy burritos!
