... br> For Halloween we held a party for Huruma orphanage. We had over 20 kids come and enjoy food and games they wouldn't otherwise get to experience. It seemed to go over very well however was stressful and very last minute when we were getting stuff together for them. But it was fun and I don't know how else I would've spent my Halloween day.

On better news I'm done half of my semester and can't wait for it to be done! The countdown is on and pasta is calling my name in ...

... natural!

On our way back we have a lot of great conversation, and I learn that kids in Tanzania are the same as the US, and I really appreciate how driven Rajai is for himself and his family.

In Arusha, Rajai asks me if I've ever had a particular kind of corn, I say no, and he asks if I want to try it - of course! It's sort of a barbecued corn, except it's done over coals, indirect heat, and carefully turned until the corn gets just ...

... of that - like hospitals, more predictable animal management, and access to more modern learning. It's been a slow and steady change, but a necessary one as they have had a harder time maintaining their size, their animals, and as they learn more modern things (like about vitamin C). So the Masai are changing and becoming less nomadic and building more permanent villages.

This also has impacted the way they build. Since they used to leave quickly, they didn't care ...
