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.
Now you can take my picture!
New shoes. Shear joy. Right?
The status of this young man has just risen ten fold with these new shoes.
Same boy who carried 100 pound cement stove parts in bare feet carrying speakers for our farewell celebration with Rotary shoes. But I am ahead of myself . Tune it to next blog for details.
