Old City

Yesterday we visited Old City where we shopped and ate lunch. I got to eat duck brain! Yummy mushy stuff! In the afternoon some of us worked on sanding the fence around where the nannies park their bikes.

It’s so humbling being here with this kids! It’s so great to see their smiles, but it’s also sad knowing many of them will never leave or be adopted.

Yesterday I played with two little girls and a boy who would smile across the room from me but would run away when I tried to walk up to them. Eventually the nanny handed me a handful of cereal and I was able to bribe them to come up to me.

Right now a bunch of us are sprawled in the hall trying to take advantage of the one spot where the internet is semi working.

Time to go play with babies for a few hours before lunch! My goal today is to visit the last 4 rooms that I haven’t been in yet.

    I left a comment last night but for some reason it didn’t post so shall try again. you are very adventurous to try these “strange”foods. I love how you embrace the opportunities. Your time with these children is such a sweet time to show them that they are HIS workmanship and are fearfully and wonderfully made! Let HIS Light shine. Love you. Thanks for your faithfulness in updating your blog, I check it all the time. Ttmab
