The staff was the highlight of our stay here, always smiling and friendly. The guest house is well situated for airport access, but is a bit far from anything, so a car is a good idea. Rooms were clean and very spacious. Breakfast was simple, but had a decent selection of items. I'd avoid the dinner here, as ours was reheated in the microwave and quite disappointing. Wifi access is a tad pricey, and the 30/60 minute vouchers must be used all at once, otherwise your minutes will be lost.

She has a Machete and was chopping popcorn up but she seems like a great laugh. Quite a few different nationalities here which is awesome, very very funny ...

The water in PE is very murky so getting down was nerve-wracking for me and many others. Plus, equalizing our ears was difficult. The nerves just got to us so it was hard to focus on the "to-do" instructions of safe diving. I was a bit turned off and ready to quit this whole diving idea.
BUT! Two weeks later on April 24, 2013 our instructor started ...
... the rest of the small children) to this small catechetical classroom in the Catholic Center next to the church. From there they were seated in a circle and the lesson was given. They did break up into small groups, but because some Core Members just wouldn't show... there was no consistency. It was also very crowded in that small room so it was hard to hear the people in your small group from all the noise.
Basically, I was proud to see that there were ...
... it was because the talk wasn’t coherent and easy to follow. She had a few moments where what she talked about was right on target with our Literacy Week message, but then she’d go off and talk about something completely unrelated. She also seemed to try too hard to empathize with the students when her childhood experiences were still drastically different from the hardships they endure on a daily basis. Digging through everything she ended ...
