There was no rest for our survivors and after sleeping through the first night even amidst the noise of kukus (chickens) and loud music our neighbors played Rhoda came to a local Maulid celebration with Annikah and I on Saturday. We could not let Bibi miss out of this chance to see the local culture and meet our welcoming and amazing friends. No boys allowed so Jason and Jim stayed home to try to rest which soon proved impossible because of the blaring speakers from our party! Pole Sana!
Rhoda’s challenge: attend local party where no one speaks English, listen to crazy loud music for a few hours, and try to fit in when everything is very different from a party at home. She narrowly survived eating the food since we took the “to-go” bags home where Anni was more than happy to eat both our shares. Bibi passed this challenge with no problems at all and although I do not think she will be searching for a CD of local music to take home she even had fun. Her reward was soon to follow….
