In my class we did a trust walk activity. The class was split into partners and one team member was blinded. The room was arranged differently and chairs and “bombs” (the yellow paper) were set up all around the room. It was the task of the seeing partner to lead the blind partner around the room without touching any of the obstacles by just speaking direction. The rest of the class was encouraged to give out wrong directions, and it was up to the two partners to trust each other to get through it without touching anything. It got especially nerve wracking when the blind partner had to jump, or take a big step. It’s hard to trust someone when they tell you to jump in the dark, but most of the students did it and nobody got hurt!
I passed by a friendly woman whose family I buy fruit from and stopped for a minute to chat. She was standing in front of a cooler she had dragged out from her store a little down a side street and she was selling cold watermelon cut up into containers
