Professor Gerardo López, who accompanied the children, explained that proudly dressed their traditional clothes they also joined the cause. Most, said the professor, came to know San José for the first time.

“It’s a new experience. They were a little shy because they are not used to seeing so many people, but they are very excited,” explained López.
