Young Explorer Blog – Day 10
It was still dark when we left our Chaparri campsite and traveled south to “Santa Catalina de Chongoyape.” This small community uses sustainable tourism as the base of their economy, providing free health and educational and security services. Tina Montalvo (USA), a volunteer from the NGO Peace Corps, was waiting for us with a visionary project, which she presented a whole eco-auditorium destined for community use built out of recycled plastic bottles.
We started with separate the bottles by size and then started building one of the walls. In the evening, we put our heads together and brainstormed ideas of how we could design the internal layout and content of the eco-auditorium. Finally, we observed the sunset at Tinajones water reservoir.
