November Retreat: Part One

Here are some pictures of the beginning moments of the YAGM Argentina-Uruguay Retreat, held in Colonia Valdense, Uruguay. 

The night before we set off to Uruguay, YAGM Kristyn Z. made a birthday cake to celebrate with the 5 YAGM volunteers who celebrated their birthday in September and October!

An Argentine "bengala"...a firework-like candle that is used on birthday cakes.

The YAGM volunteers with Country Coordinators Krystle and Ignacio, getting ready to board our boat to cross the Río de la Plata, the river that runs between Uruguay and Argentina.

The volunteers with Ignacio and a friendly dog in Colonia Sacramento, the port town that we explored as we waited for our bus to leave. 

Some games and group-building activities.

The volunteers working on their art projects.
