We just hung out for the morning with the kids as I tried to write about yesterday. Lol, it was a LONG DAY!
|Levi playing with the kids that lived right next door to our Guest House|
Rita and Glen came over to give us a tour through Kikongo.
Went to the small market, into their teaching hospital, down the blvd of student housing, even got to stop a garden and see some peanuts! (I have never seen a peanut garden before)
Saw some other local fruit
LOTS of mangos every where. So many fallen to the ground and rotten
|I was originally trying to take a picture of the market food, |
but these girls squeezed into the frame ehehe!
|A kid rolling his toy made of a tire rim|
|The student housing|
|This lady was so excited to show me her place (one of the student housing)|
|Rita called her "smiley eyes"|
|Peanuts grow in the ground! Along with these "ground nuts" corn (maze) is another staple product of this community|
|The Farmer showing me his peanuts!|
|This fruit is bigger than Jasons head! Now that is saying something LOL :P|
|Playing in the Wamba River|
|The French Freys hanging out in the Wamba River|
|Nap time! Doens't this just melt your heart!|
|Chillin with papa|
|My local buddies lol|
|Arent we sexy infront of the Cessna 206 :P|
|Yes, I am wearing a skirt. . . Weird.|
|On our way down to the boat, we had a group of kids following us, and they just LOVE getting their pictures taken lol and they kept wanting to do Ninja poses, lol so I made them do this instead :P|
Glen got out his river boat for us and took us on a very awesome tour upstream and telling us some old stories of when he was a kid. . . it took him 2 weeks of living in the boat to travel upstream to Kinshasa!
|Amelia chillin in the boat|
|Nick thought we might not get a refreshing dip in the river, so he soaked his hat instead :P|
|No joke, these kids went NUTS when I started taking pictures and then showing the shot to them, they would cheer so loud after every time hahaha so FUN !|
|Kissing Lisa goodbye and hopes that she survives. . . LOL|
|See the seed? |
Once the whole fruit is ripe, there will be tonnes of seeds within
The flesh to eat would be around the seeds.
So this one right now isn't ready. . . she just wanted to show us the inside :D
Once back at the Guest House, Glen came back with us to play with the telescope!
Got the telescope put together and he brought out his star chart. . . So for the next our we were able to find some of the constellations.
So neat. !!
I could get addicted to that hehehe
|While star gazing, there was a commotion inside! |
They found a small scorpion in the sink. Thankyou RAID for saving the day lol
We then sat down with some tea and played a game of Setters of Catan.
In bed by 10pm! Pfewf! What a day!
And to end todays blog, here is an awesome picture (thank you Nick) of Jo and Ruth in her reflection <3 <3
