The children met us at out hotel. There eyes were huge. Nayerli ask me if it was my house. As we rode the bus through the city to the park, she carefully took in every-single-thing. Many times she would awe and point at things that seem so common. The honest excitement she had pouring out was enough to make my entire journey worth it.
At the park we fed the goldfish, enjoyed playgrounds, zip-lines, waterfalls, go-carts, huge slides, gorgeous gardens and a wonderful spread for lunch. It was such a relaxing and joyful day. Watching kids be kids (and big kids be kids) brought everything to an "in the now moment." Hearing the sponsor children laugh and squill was the best symphony score I have ever heard.
