Some years ago we offered one of our programs over the Christmas season so that people coming might experience the way the Mexican people celebrate Christmas. In communications sent after people booked on that program, I mentioned that if anyone wanted to (no obligation) they could bring with them school supplies (pencils, paper, erasers, little books, shoes, sweaters, etc) and we would arrange to take them to the orphanage. (We would go to the orphanage on Christmas Day). Well one couple that came on the Christmas program was quite young and they had two children with them. The kids had made up twenty packages with crayons, coloring books, eraser and pencil sharpener and a little toy and some candy. The parents, Frank and Mary asked if they could come with us on Christmas Day. So early on Christmas morning we head off for the orphanage (located just west of Ajijic in San Juan Cosala).
