We really enjoyed our time in this village. It was a true challenge for our American world views and standards. Hygiene, housing, and family relationships was a small sampling of the major differences between how the people in this village lived in comparison to Americans or westerners in general.
Here is the truck that dropped us off at our compound. The driver and her friend helped us get settled before leaving. We could not communicate with our hosts so I was thankful for the brief introduction from our new friends.
We brought a ball and the kids in the compound and our boys played most of the day even in the rain and mud. I don’t think our kids have ever gotten so dirty. And there is no running water or bathtub!
Much of our days was spent looking at each other as there isn’t much to do when it is raining.
