On Friday we visited an orphanage. They have 72 kids living there. They were so excited to have visitors that they followed us around on our tour of the grounds while two or three of them held on to each of our hands and arms. The orphanage was nice and the kids seemed like they were doing well. It was sad though because the government has put a hold on adoptions due to abuse of adopted kids being a problem they were seeing.
After that we went back to the Lott Carey school and painted the faces of the very shy nursery school kids, most of whom are 3 years old. We then attended the high school debate in the auditorium. They were debating whether pre-primary education or college was more important to your overall education. It was a rowdy display of forensics and audience participation. After school was out we went to the beach for a swim. The water was warm and the wind made for some big waves. We left tired and covered in sand.
On Saturday we went to the market and did some other shopping. It was insanely busy and took us forever to get downtown and back to the house. The rest of the day we relaxed and tried to stay cool.
Today we went to church which lasted for almost three hours. We sang a lot of songs and listened to a mighty sermon. We got our clothes from the dress maker last night and I wore my skirt to church. It is so hot here but don’t worry Dad, we’re drinking lots of water. We will be at different fistula clinics all next week so I am not sure if I will get to check in or not. We heard a rumor that our flight on Sunday might be cancelled by the airline due to it not being full enough.
