We woke up early on Friday morning so we can pack up and say our goodbyes to the church! We will not forget the kindness of San Martin de Porres church for opening their doors to us.
We started our drive north and stopped in San Antonio to explore for the day. We walked around the river walk and picked up last minute souvenirs at the different booths. We also went over to the Alamo to learn about the history of the battle and it’s interesting how certain things are glorified in our history.
As we explored the places around the river walk, we found things we were familiar with and rare things. We came together for one last group dinner at Casa Rio and enjoyed each other’s company and the nice warm weather because we knew we would have to wait a few more months in Minnesota.
We drove back to the cities and we arrived in Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon. We said Hasta luego to each other because we knew that this wasn’t an Adios moment and that we will only see more of each other at Augsburg now. We’ll all make a conscious effort to say hi to each other in the hall ways and to share about our unforgettable experiences.
I’m honestly so grateful to everyone I met on this trip and for everyone who made it possible for us!! We made memories that’ll stay with us for a life time!
