Tuesday, July 7

While waiting for Gary to pick us up this morning, we took the time to snap a picture of our hotel for these five nights (Sunday thru Friday morning).

This morning we finished up our painting job at the FEU. Bruno easily gets the award today for the hardest worker (or was it the award for the best acting job?).

In the afternoon we again met up with some of the Bouge ta Metropole youngsters. This time we gathered in Lille and removed weeds from several streets near the city hall. We met at this 150+ year old building, where they passed out hoes and garbage bags and brooms. 

After getting our instructions, we hit the streets.

The big excitement of the afternoon was when a local TV station came to report on what we were doing. They interviewed several of our group.

Of course, Greg charmed the reporter with his humor.

When the project was over, the leader of the city hall invited us upstairs for refreshments.

Tomorrow we head to Hem for a kids fair.
