We Are Off to Wilmington, Delaware
We were greeted by the local peace community this morning in Wilmington. We shared in a vigil where we waved messages of peace and justice. Then they treated us to lunch where we all scribbled peace wisdom on the table for the bussers. We took off down the road shortly after. Delaware is a beautiful place to ride a bike. We crossed the Brandywine Canal and cruised down quarter mile-long hills till we landed at the church that is housing us.
Though the message on the sign in the picture below is slightly misleading, it should do. The church has been very welcoming and accommodating. Big thanks to Tim, Sally, Sarah, Wayne, Judy, June and friends!
Sally took us out to a local food coop for groceries and delivered an inkind donation. Rus and I study coffee for 20 minutes. How exciting. Our itinerary is set for the weekend and we will begin tomorrow morning with what is being described as an Adult-Education class.
We left Philly this morning with some good hugs. We also pulled off a Richter-Family interview and gained some more insight into the lives of our hosts. Thanks again to the Richters for all their hospitality.
