Wet Day

Here in Peru, February is the month of “Carnival”.  While there are some bad traditions associated with Carnival, in Peru, it is mostly just to get each other wet.  Girls and guys have to be watchful the entire month because you never know when you might get hit with a balloon filled with paint, or a water balloon, or even a bucket of water.  We finished off this month of kids club with a water balloon fight.  Today was not the best day to do it.  It has been raining off and on the whole day, but the kids have been looking forward to it and wanted to go ahead and do it.  We filled up 200 water balloons for the occasion.  We did some relay races and then the kids had about 120 balloons to hit each other with.  Thankfully, I escaped without even getting hit.
