So, I mentioned somewhere that I had some video clips. They are all very short, 11 seconds for the first one and the other three are about a minute long. I couldn’t afford to get stuck behind a video camera on this trip and I didn’t bring a camera with strong audio capability which is why there are so few clips. But, here’s what I got…
Here are the kids saying ‘welcome’ at Veronica’s project ES826
This clip is of the entrance of the flag at my welcome ceremony at Veronica’s project.
Here is Esteban signing the song I told you about with the lyrics being something like:
God is in my heart.
God is in this house.
That’s why we have peace.
This last clip is of Gloria; the younger sister of Banesa. We were running short on time but Gloria had just told me that her sponsors were also from Australia and I thought I’d take a video clip of Gloria and try to find them so they can see it. (See my Nov 25th 2010 update in the comments). We really put Gloria on the spot. She had no idea we were about to record. We ‘restarted’ twice but you can see all that in the clip. Translation below.
I played back the clip for Carlos later that day and asked him to translate.
Gloria says: ‘Thank you so much for sponsoring me. I love you. I wish that one day you may be able to visit me. I take good care of your pictures.’
And Gloria does take care of the pictures and letters. She’d spread them out on the table to show me and you can see them at the end of the video however making the camera focus while recording video was beyond me at that point!
