Turtle Tour

By: Rachel Golla
Hi mommy and daddy! I miss you so much and I cannot wait to see you tomorrow! What a trip! Unfortunately, I have to leave early and miss the rest of this unforgettable adventure with these amazing young girls. A few days ago, we had the opportunity to go on a “Turtle Tour,” and we watched a turtle laying its eggs.  I’m pretty sure I was eaten alive by many bugs and critters and lost many hours of sleep, but those were the things that pushed me even more to see the turtle. Because of the harsh environment with all the bugs, it made me realize that I was surrounded by people who would feel exhausted and itch their legs every minute, nonetheless observe a beautiful animal living on its own. All in all, this has been a life-changing trip for me with the orphanage, library organization, and surfing.
