Hoy en la revista escolar, en la página 9/28 ha aparecido publicado un pequeño artículo sobre nuestro viaje a Mongolia. Dice así:

¨Habitat for Humanity Mongolia team gives hope to unprivileged family¨
by Brennan Chamberlin – Staff Reporter

During the October break, Mr. Tom Horton, high school biology teacher, and Mr. Javier Castro, high school Spanish teacher, led eighteen students to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, for a weeklong Habitat for Humanity build. Greeted by a small flurry of snow, the team constructed the basic of a house for an unprivileged family.
Junior Henry Juan said, ¨The trip was better than I expected because normally people think the trips closer to China means a boring trip. I think it was quite a success, and I hope I will be lucky enough to return to Mongolia in the future for another Habitat build¨.
Mr. Horton said, ¨My favorite thing we did was riding horses in the national park; all the trees were really pretty with autumn yellow leaves. Another great memory was all the great cooking everyone did. I was like living in the Friends TV show. I was Matthew Perry, with the kitchen in the hostel, and everybody was always chopping and cooking away!¨

¨El equipo de Habitat para la Humanidad – Mongolia lleva esperanza a una familia menos afortunada¨
Por Brennan Chamberlin - Reportero

Durante las vacaciones de octubre, el Sr. Tom Horton, profesor de biología, y el Sr. Javier Castro, profesor de español, llevaron a un grupo de 18 estudiantes a Ulan Bator, en Mongolia, para trabajar durante una semana en la construcción de una casa. Recibidos por una ligera nevada, el grupo construyó los fundamentos básicos de una casa para una familia menos privilegiada.
El estudiante de grado 11 Henry Juan dijo, ¨El viaje fue mejor de lo que esperaba, porque normalmente la gente piensa que los viajes cerca de China son más aburridos. Pienso que fue un éxito, y espero tener la suerte de volver a Mongolia en el futuro para ayudar a construir otra casa¨.
El Sr. Horton dijo, ¨Lo favorito para mi fue montar a caballo en el parque nacional; todos los árboles estaban preciosos, con las hojas amarillas por el otoño. Otro gran recuerdo fue ver a todos cocinando. Era como vivir en la serie televisiva Friends. Yo era Matthew Perry, y ¡todo el mundo estaba con las manos en la masa en la cocina del hostel!¨
