Our bathroom after a summer of teams...

Throughout the summer if we are lucky the volunteer teams leave us goodies. These goodies include things such as granola bars, fruit roll ups, cheese crackers, pop tarts, vanilla wafers, real Fritos, sunglasses (for me), and many skirts from all the ladies, or at least I think only the ladies gave us skirts. But the one of the best has been the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion. Although many of these bottles are almost empty we enjoy them ever so much. They are ridiculously priced here!! And I was recently introduced to "love spell." No, no one tried to trick me into falling in love with them.. although I have that effect on many. =) Anyway, Its like any many miney moe (never actually spelled that.. don’t know if that’s right) in the shower. Our guard that cleans our house once a week organized them and I think he might of color coordinated them as well. Way to go Charles.

Mozambique Bound

This past month has been busy with all the volunteer teams, and once they left we went to see some friends. I'm sorry it has been a month since an update. I will try my best to update away. We spent 4 days in Mozambique and I was blessed with another stamp in my passport and having the feeling once again that I don't understand anyting. It is a Portuguese speaking country. Where we went you spoke Portuguese or yao. It was funny when I did actually have a conversation with a man, it was in Chichewa. Never thought that would happen. My chichewa was very broken, but I was able to tell him where I was from and where I was going. First breakthrough in Chichewa 101. My teacher will be proud.
