Boys Town, Peru
Well after an hour of putting our lives on the line in Lima traffic, we arrived at the Santa Maria orphanage in the outskirts of Lima. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn’t Boys Town with Mickey Rooney. We arrived at the gate and were let in(finally) and parked. The boys were everywhere and they were glad to see us, the clowns of CCI had been here before.
The children were elated to watch the show we put on; lots of magic, clowning and smiles. Everything went well until we handed out the balloon swords; then sword fights ensued and there were many balloon injuries.
It was fun for us and for them.
These kids have nothing and this was probably a treat for them.
