In the "Cult of Escapism": Tamboritos

Saturday, August 21, 2010


   I'm feeling a little lazy in terms of blogging (we woke up at 5:00am - it was still dark), so this will be short, but there are some pictures posted below. We went to an active PC site and spoke with the volunteer there about her economic projects, teaching computer skills, and her overall lifestyle.  

   It was very interesting, but my favorite part were the tamboritos (little drums) that the villagers used to welcome us.  For those who don't know, I play the drums and have been harboring a fantasy that I will be able to play tribal drums with the locals in my village.  I got a taste today, as you can see below.

A PC trainee dancing with a local woman.

Me jamming with the locals.  

               This country is beautiful, here's a view from the village today.
