The first photo is of the Bela family. The Arnolds invited us to go with them to teach this family.  The next photo is of the next to the youngest son, we played peek a boo back and forth all evening.  He was very tired by the time we left.  We all set around their dining room table (which is outside).  Very humble living conditions.  But a very sweet family.  We brought cookies and the Arnolds brought some chips and salsa to share, they made dinner.  We had nims for the first time.  Like an egg roll but they use grated turnip instead of cabbage.  They also made prune cake, meat sandwiches and various kinds of fruit especially bananas.  Which brings us to the banana photo.  Talk about having your year's supply, in various stages of ripeness. And now it is time to get back home.  Yes we traveled around the island, up the mountain thru the woods and forged the stream to get there and now we had to go back in the dark.  We started crossing and yes I had my camera out the window, and then I said, I can finally see land on the other side.  Now down the rough road and around the island back to our apartment.  YEAH!!! Home again.

  1. So do they eat prune cake to make up for all those bananas? Was it good? It sounds kind of weird! Glad you didn't float away on your way home!
