Today, we left Farjardo around 8 to arrive at Bici Caño around 9. Bici Caño is a non-profit that offers bike tours of the 8 barrios that surround the Caño Martín Peña to raise money for and awareness of the communities present. Once there, we selected our bikes and started off on our two-hour ride.
We traveled around the “monja” neighborhood, stopping every 10 or so minutes to discuss different attributes of the barrio, both current and historical. I think it is safe to say that the bike ride was particularly eye-opening for us Westtown students.
After we finished our ride, we ate a quick lunch before heading out to the beach, where we spent the remainder of the day.
We have a full day of service tomorrow, so look out for that post! See you all then.
