Both Sides Now
When many people think of Seattle, they think of the Space Needle, the mountains, and the rain. Of course, Seattle is much more complex than that. Today, the PVs got to see Seattle on a whole new level. The work day began the same way yesterday ended, at the community garden at Our Lady of Guadalope Church. From there, the volunteers went to Nickelsville. Nickelsville is "a self managed eco village in Seattle for up to 1,000 homeless people." We encourage you to visit their website http://www.nickelsville.org/ to read more about this extraordinary place. We will have much more in the days ahead about our experience at Nickelsville, but for now, we will leave you with a few pictures from the day.
