|This is the pathway up to my tent... along with a couple of bandas (bigger structures where families are living) and 2 other tents. The Gerths (the family from Holland, MI) are up here too, but to the left!|
There are lots of boulders around the campsite, to my heart's delight! I haven't actually "rock climbed" any yet but I'd love to hook up some supports on top and wish I had my climbing harness! Oh well. In the meantime, I've been hiking a lot. And climbing rocks. There's a little path up to a high spot on the campsite that the kids have taken to calling "Little Kilimanjaro," and we took a few fun pics there.
|A couple of the kids I had at orientation, with Jeannette Gerth. Love these girls!|

|Kara was practicing tying her kanga (the cloth) to hold her babydoll, |
just like all the mama's do with their babies!
|Her brother was diligently feeding the termites (in the big holes) this morning. |
I'm sure they were glad for the free meal and the welcome to stay at the campsite.

I sit here most mornings before class starts, soaking up the sun... it's cold first thing and at night!!!
