So, it's been a while since i've done anything with this... thing. So, i thought i might put up a few photos to give a little update on some fun activities i've been up to. And, also, give a little glimpse into my life here. Enjoy!
These are two of the hardest working people in my village: Angela Mukalula (L), the Vice Chariwoman and Fanny Chisha (R), the Chairwoman for the Tubombeshe Women's Club, in our maize fields.
These are my members of my famliy and Women's group I started. We were celebrating Cinco BaMayo, a little tradition here in Northern Province. From Left to right, top row: BanaArron(1st wife to Sabe), Bertha Mulenga (My Bamayo), Mable Sabe(2nd wife to Sabe), Angela Mukalula (the ViceChairWoman for the Tubombeshe Women's Club), Fanny Chisha (the ChairWoman for the Tubombeshe Women's Club), Angela's son, me, Sabe, Mr. Mulenga (Husband to Fanny), Mr. Stephen Mulenga Chilambwe (My Batata). The two guys in the front row were priests I had invited from town, one a missionary from Mexico and the other from Zambia.
These are ALL the Mexicans in the Northern Province of Zambia (that I know of), representing with pride our heritage for Cinco BaMayo. John Boso, Maralf Jimenez, and me!
Here's me doing my evening routine. Sitting with a cup of coffee on my stoop, reading and being pestered by the neighborhood kids from time to time.
Below is the view from where I sit when I'm reading.
This is at the Close of Service party we had for some volunteers returning to the States. Its so sad to see them go!!! So, we all dressed up like amaguys! It's difficult to explain. Christine
Another dress up party. Me with my friend Meera. This time it was awkward middle school dance!
