Post-program vlog

I filmed this nearly a week after getting home. It's been about 2 weeks now that we've all been home.

I think I will make one final blog post some time soon to close this blog. There are many more videos from my CWY experience on my youtube channel that I see no point in posting here. Most are from our time in Saskatoon at our re-integration camp and some are from our post-program road trip that a couple of us did. I do want to write a final reflexions of my program on here soon. So stay tuned!

From last Tuesday

This was the vlog I took from my last night in Cecilia's house. It was extremely emotional for me. Thelma and Cecilia were a bit shocked at how sad I really was.

Less than 2 weeks left!

Our program is coming rapidly to a close. As excited as I am to get home, have my independence and privacy back, that doesn't change the fact that I love everyone in our group and will be immensely sad to separate myself from them. But I know that I will see everyone again. It's looking like all the Canadian participants are pretty much planning on moving to the Ontario/Québec region, so we'll all be close enough to see each other. The Nicas will of course see each other again, since they all live in the same town. All of the Canadians do plan on eventually returning to Nicaragua.

So this weekend we were a bit busy. Yesterday in the day, everyone went to Thomas Porter's house. Thomas Porter is currently building 2 "eco-houses", meaning houses are completely sustainable. He and his wife, Amanda, are building one house out of hay barrels and another out tires. The tire house's construction however must be put off until the summer because of the snow. Some of the things he showed us that he does to not use electricity and water are really amazing and simple. Makes one realize just how lazy and idiotic the general population of North America truly is.

Yesterday night, most of the group went out to see a hockey game. The Prince Albert Raiders were playing against the Vancouver Giants. The Giants were quite violent and unreasonable. The Raiders won. It was a fun time.

After wards, Kayla, Romain, Enmanuel, Angela (a friend of our's from P.A.) and myself went out bowling. I haven't gone bowling in years! It was really a painful reminder of how much I suck at bowling. It was a cool rock 'n' bowl sort of atmosphere. We stayed until about 11:30. Kayla took a video that I thought I'd post for you guys. In this video, the gang I was there with had dared me to try and bowl while going into a splits. It failed...

So this week is our last week of work. We only work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday we'll be doing our final evaluation and on Friday we will have our final EAD. Next Sunday we've organised and put up a photo exposé of some of our best pictures from Nicaragua. We're having a private party as a "farewell and thank you" to the community of Prince Albert. It should be fun but may be emotional.

All for now!
