Our Greenheart Travel volunteers, Janvier and Safiya, share a journal entry during their volunteer adventure from Costa Rica over the holiday break. Below is an excerpt from Dec. 27.

Today, we began building a new habitat from the ground up…literally! We gathered the ingredients for cement, mixed them together, then added water. It’s just like baking your favorite cake from scratch, except you’re pushing the ingredients around in a wheelbarrow, hefting a shovel – not a hand mixer, and you can’t lick the bowl!
It was really hot this afternoon, so instead of subjecting Safiya to all that shoveling and mixing, I put her in charge of getting some really good pics of the humming birds that hover around the pond. She did a great job.
After dinner, we made dessert empanadas! They smelled sooooo good as they were baking. They tasted even better!
