Day 8

After breakfast we took out the total station to survey and map the plaza and surrounding houses. Around noon we left for the ¬†teacher’s festival in Milpuc. We heard the head of the teachers’ association speak about pay raise for teachers, lack of resources, and classroom issues. He also called for a teachers strike to gain some recognition.¬†

We walked back to Chirimoto, finished the plaza map, and then went to see the bookmobile. The bookmobile is still just a metal frame, and we spent some tim watching Panchito’s kids climb on it and try to wheel it around.
