Day 21

Mass, Jungle, beach oh my!

Glad we found a church to go to to keep us grounded. Post-church, em made us some sandwiches and even cut us an apple. thxs ma.

We made it to the Jungle around 2:30 P.M. today and thought we’d only stay for a little while. Didn’t make it home until 10:00 P.M.!

The best days are filled with spontaneous adventures, making new friends, and finding seals.

yea. the animal. what?

Today was the most fun day building relationships and getting to know the residents of the Jungle. Andrea taught our new Eritrean friend how to salsa dance. He taught us how to play checkers and made us dinner: naan and sardines. Better than it sounds.

It was great sitting around in the shelter sharing a meal with so many different people from so many backgrounds. Generosity runs rampant around the camp.

We spent the rest of the day exploring behind the camp with our new friends from Eritrea, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Spain,  and France.

Fun fact:

  • WWII Nazi bunkers line the shores behind the Jungle.
  • What?
  • Also: un-exploded bombs & torpedoes lay strewn across the beach. Watch your step!

So many dunes, explosives, and laughs! Such a good time taking in the view at the beach, (lots of seals playing in the water!) climbing into the bunkers, and having the guys treat us like princesses. It’s hilarious.
