Hi Duane--

Your fieldnote is very good. I agree with you that kids seems to like the environment of Barrios Unidos that seems to be designed to comfort children and to create "safe heaven" from them. I guess my question (as probably many other people, including probably parents have) is whether the kids learn something from the game and from your guys? What do you think?


PS You did not write your inquiry but reading your description of interests provide my a clue. It looks like that you are interesting in designing supportive environment for kids with problems (what kind of problems?) and you may consider the environment of Barrios Unidos as possible such environment. Am I right?
