March 15th, 2017 Journey to Freedom

Today we went to see the children in the kindergarten in the village in the morning and visited baby elephants in the jungle in the afternoon. Even though we do not speak their language, but we used body languages to interact with the children. It was interesting to be a part of a different culture and to learn about their actions through different people. In the afternoon, we went on a short trek to see baby elephants in the jungle. Despite the hot weather in Chiang Mai, our team members were able to overcome the difficulties and carry on with daily activities. After dinner, we sat together in a circle to talk about our life stories. As a leader, I came up with two questions, “one thing you miss about home
and “how does culture and religion shape an individual’s identity” and had a great discussion.
