Day 3- Boulder, Colorado

From September 18, 2008

So here we are in Boulder and we’ve had a really busy day! We drove up from Denver, because with another trip to Durango that has been added to our schedule it ended up being the cheapest thing to do.

We met with Bruce Bergner the Interim Chair of the Theatre Department at University of Colorado, Boulder and we had a great meeting. I think the students from that program will really benefit from this trip and I’m anxious to talk to them personally when they start hearing about the project. (So students, CONTACT US HERE.)

We’re also being hosted by a very nice family in Boulder, a connection made thanks toglobalfreeloaders, and we’ve been treated very well by them and everyone we’re meeting.

So tomorrow we’re going to look into another school in Boulder that we haven’t been able to make contact with just yet. Wish us luck and we’ll tell you all about it tomorrow.

Uncle Tim

From August 15, 2008

I’d like to send out a big THANK YOU from the DAT team to our wonderful Translator/ Friend/ Guide/ Brother/ Problem Solver/ Crazy Uncle Tim!

Tim traveled with us throughout Ecuador, planning things, helping us talk to people, solving many a “crisis”, and just plain being fun to hang out with.

He popped into our trip and kept popping up, saving the day, for the whole 2 months we were in the country.

So, let’s try this on for size:

Muchas Gracias Timateo. Tu eres el mejor persona para ayudar nuestro grupo por todo tiempo estamos en el pais de Ecuador. Muchas Gracias por tu presencia en nuestro grupo. Te quierimos, y nada persona mas de Maria! Tu eres me hermano favorito, muchas gracias!

Hope that was correct! Thank you again so so much!

1st blog from Zimbabwe!!!

Current mood:  excited

Hi Friends!

We are in chilly, but SUNNY, Harare on our first leg of our Zimbabwe journey. We’re taking some time to acclimate ourselves to the city and we have our first workshop tonight. There could be up to 50 adults, children, and University students there. It will be really crazy!

We have a host who has been showing us around the city. He and everyone we meet have been so gracious and accommodating. We’re spending a lot of time in his car, and we’re anxious to get to some of the rural areas where we can eat fruit, walk around on our own and see the full sky of stars at night.

We’ll keep you posted on the journey to the best of our ability. Internet cafe’s have proven to be difficult to locate and we’ll be busy working soon. Keep sending us your prayers and warm wishes. We can feel your love all the way down here!

Peace and Love,

The DA Zim Team
