Taking Trick or Treating to the Street

For the last couple years our wonderful librarian, Ms. Feller, has organized on-campus trick or treating for our kids. This year though she took us to the streets (or better, the one street most of the teachers live on). In light of the on-going security situation here, it would be empowering to be able to say that we took back the streets for Halloween. But it wouldn’t be true because, as far as I can tell, trick or treating with kids running around neighborhoods has never been a thing in Venezuela, hence nothing to “take back.”

Friday afternoon (before sunset mind you) teachers stood at the gates of their respective buildings and some even at the trunks of their cars on the Calle la Cinta to set the scene for our kids to have some trick or treating fun. Kids walked and sprinted from building to building adding to their treat bags, already full from the day at school. We even had some local neighbors calling down to us from their barred windows above.

A special thanks to Tim, the Heils, and Stacey for the adult-oriented treats along the way.
