Just wanted to update on some more of what we did in the week and a half Bibi & Katy were here. Here are some pictures of our first few days…
The small plane we took to the island.
We were so excited to show them around our school site. It looks great and for the past few months since we have been “out of the game” ( & by ‘out of the game’ I meaning ‘puking in the house’) our team mates have been doing all the work and doing an amazing job. Above is Rich working on the roof of the car workshop.
school from the front gate….check out that coral rock they dug up
I love this picture of some of Jason’s friends that are working on the classrooms that will be used for teaching English, computing, etc. Exciting Progress!
Mom, Katy, and Jason went on a spice tour to see how they grow the spices here.
Lots of shopping in town….Mom managed to fill those suitcases! Was there ever any doubt?
Showing them around some of my favorite stores in town
We took a drive to visit some of Anni’s favorite sites. On one drive we got pulled over and because Mom was not wearing her seat belt she was written up and told we had to appear in court. Sure, a family of five can ride on a motorcycle with no helmets but hassle us for no seat belt…. really? After about 45 minutes of arguing our team leader showed up (he happened to be driving back from another part of the island with his family) and since he knew the officer he talked to him for a few minutes and offered him some soda …two minutes later he told us we could leave and ripped up the court notice. We were relieved Mom did not have to spend the rest of her trip in a Tanzania prison, always a good thing!
Anni shows Katy & Bibi how the women wear their head coverings above.
We had to show them the forest full of crazy monkeys
…it was an adventure as always!
How amazing is this picture Jason took? They are THAT close!
Annikah has been taking about taking them to see the kipepeo
(butterfly) for months and they enjoyed seeing the local butterfly sanctuary
how sweet is a chubby hand holding a kipepeo?
I love this picture Katy took…pure joy!
more to come……
