Zapatos Means Shoes, Do You Care?

Its kind of neat to throw in a Spanish word now and then but do you really care. Probably not; unless you are trying to learn Spanish. But Zapatos  (sah-Pah-tos ) is such a cool word and giving shoes to kids who have none is such a cool thing to do I had to use it.  Joan and Denise traveled by Tuk Tuk (small three-wheeled vehicle ) to the nearby town of Panahachel to buy a pile of shoes for the kids.   Then back to San Antonio to hand them out. There just isn’t a more satisfying thing to do.

If the shoes fits wear it. If it doesn't wear it anyway because there is no way I am giving up these new shoes.
