First look at the native’s lifestyle

Today we had another eye-opening experience….   We started by visiting another orphanage, but this one is for boys.  They had a larger piece of land than the girls orphanage did, which allowed them to have cattle and horses.  While there the boys challenged a few from our group in table soccer which we won, but when challenged to a real game of soccer or futbol, as its called here, we were majorly defeated.  Then we spent the afternoon learning about the health care facilities that are located on the border of the reservation in Dourados.  We visited the hospital that the Native Brazilians on the reservation use and the children’s clinic that focuses mainly on child malnutrition. 

Tomorrow we will be traveling to the city of Bonito, where we are unsure if we will have internet access so there may not be a new blog until we return to Dourados.
