After our hour taxi ride, we take a boda ride of death up a super steep hill and then hike the rest of the way to the village. But before our hike I ran into this little fella sipping water. Can we talk about his sweet face for a sec? I adore him. He was super shy so we didn't really get to play much. Just a few pics before our hike. P.S. His name is, in fact, Shadrach. No joke, his brothers name is Meshach. We asked where Abednago was. Still unknown.
This is Dennis. He is pretty hilarious. He is always trying to teach us the language...but they're usually words that we already know. I don't even know how to explain him to you. He's just funny. Sometimes I have him say things because we're both amused by it. Also, he cannot pronounce my name. I had to get it on video. Anytime anyone hears my name they always say, "Oh, Mangrid." haha What is that?!
They have sell corn here quite a bit. They gave each of us a some corn that they'd grilled. Not bad. :)
The next morning I was hiking up to the school to take pictures to thank all of our donors for the health clinic, and I heard a little voice say, "How are you?". I looked over and saw little Damalie on her feet and running up the hill toward me. I grabbed her and pretty much carried her all day long. haha Hiking up and down the hill was a bit more difficult...but I'd also run 6 miles the previous day so I'm sure that contributed to the tuckeredness. Not a word. I'm aware. haha Here's the little lady:
