On Sunday, I returned from one of the greatest trips ever. I was a volunteer with the Kaiizen Organization. It's completely volunteer run, and they take trips to Mexico to help orphanages. It was a great, though very short, experience. We drove down the first day, served for two days, and drove back the fourth day. So here's the first of the travel (b)log:
Day 1: Thursday, June 26
We all assembled. From the Utah chapter, there were a fair amount of us. Adam McBride and his car, Pikachu, were my traveling buddies. We met the two other gals who would be riding with us: two sisters Chelsea and Katey Jones. We came, we got free t-shirts and drivers packets, and we departed. Our car conversation throughout the entire trip was fabulous: ranging from topics of family, goals, school, life, super powers....
After we got past the border, the pivotal turnoff that our group needed to take was completely closed off. We lost two cars in traffic, both inexperienced in the ways of Kaiizen, so we wandered around for a WHILE...but the scenery was great! I got a migraine, but Katey, Chelsea and Adam were super nice and very patient with me. I got over the worst of it right before the infamous Taco Stand visit! SO tasty.
