Besides the great fun and adventure of traversing the continents, we wanted to visit schools for the blind and meet with various organizations that support the blind community. We had concentrated on the ride itself up until now to work out all the kinks of international cycle touring. Santiago is our first stop to engage with the blind communities in South America.
We spent the first couple of days relaxing and enjoying Santiago life. Today we were guests of honor at an event hosted by the Servicio Nacional de la Discapacidad (SENADIS) where we received medals in recognition of our journey and our effort to raise awareness. Over the next two days, we will visit schools for the blind in Santiago and we will update with photos. (Please note that we may not be able to capture everything since we will be busy engaging with the students. We'll do what we can to share our experiences with them!)
If you haven't already, please take a second to "like" our Facebook page and ask your friends to do so as well. Our goal is to raise awareness about the abilities of the visually impaired, and this is a simple way to help achieve that goal.
Spread the word and help us Raise Awareness!
