This week we had since long time an appointment. Stefan supported for many years a godchild from the organization Plan and this week we wanted to visit him.
We were very exited. First we met the team members of Plan in there office where they gave us some general information about their work and the town where Yampier lives.
Then we were ready to drove there, but not prepared for what was waiting for us!
First people we met were Yampier and his family, and a little curricle with a white horse decorated with little flags and signs welcoming us. They were followed by other people like the mayor of the town. Then we had a little ride on the curricle, which is the typical art of transportation, to the Yampiers school. And there we were just flashed by the welcome!
The whole school, over 500 children and their teachers were waiting for us. Next hour they were singing and dancing, telling a poem and showing us their school. And Stefan had the honor to hoist the flag of Peru.
Later we went to Yampier's house and had a nice meal with his family.
We also visited a health center and the important water channel for farming, as the area is normally very dry.
It was a really great and interesting day!
Same day we head up more north to the last stop in Peru, to a little town called Mancora.
It is a touristy place but has beautiful beaches and really warm weather!
