Photo Walk with the Camera for Kids Kids

Joe and I walked around Mindo with the Salem children and our cameras today, I let them lead the way. Their interests are in La Naturaleza, Nature, so they took us along the raging Mindo River and we took photos of each other and anything else that captured our interest. These children live together during the week at Salem International, and go home to their families on the weekend. They come from disadvantaged homes broken up by drug and alcohol abuse or other disfunction. In spite of it all, they are loving to each other, to us and are fun to be with!

I love these children! They are mostly the same ones from when I was here last year, except for the girl in the yellow.

Me and Cristian.

 Tubing is big business on the river in Mindo. 

Cristian took this great shot of Maria with one of the donated cameras.

Joe got this one.

A woman who asked one of the boys to help her get this guava down from the tree. He did, by throwing many large sticks at it.

Cristian and Noemi

 Also another image by Joe, he's taking lots of photos and blogging, too!! See a link to his blog on the right side listing.

Maira y Susana.  Maira is an incredible football goalie, we watched a game where she single handedly stopped about 50 goals!  Susana is more interested in Alvaro and the other boys :-)
