Hello, beautiful D4RT benefactors! I hope this November morning finds you well.
Your incentives will be on their way to you very soon, Meanwhile, this post is here to serve as a home to the six articles I've written about the Yanataló experience. First, a word from my class:
Yes, thank you. I can never say that enough. Not just for your financial contributions, but for all the love and support that's surrounded this project from the start and made the workshop possible. And the mural, too:
Called Ice Cream Mountain, it wouldn't exist without the invaluable help of a couple of students, another teacher, the school's night watchman and a kind local couple. They visited me and my ladder throughout the day, offering food, drinks, and when time began to run out, their hands. We painted for over twelve hours to the sounds of pigs, chickens and cicadas, until the sun dipped back into the jungle and it was time to toast and go home. You can't enter or leave Yantaló without passing our bright young adventurers.
