Where I stayed
Mountain Fund House
The top stories from the past few days:
1) The bus Hayley and I jumped on to get home Tuesday evening was jam packed, as they usually are around 6
She was intense. I complimented her kurta, told her it was great to meet her, and hopped off the bus smiling
2) I stopped in a store to find some fabric and have my first salwar kameez tailored. I wandered into the store and looked at some of the ready made things, and the guy working there got me to look at the fabrics. They give you three pieces of fabric...one for the top, one for the pants, and a scarf. I was wrapped in about 10 different fabric sets before finally picking one...its green and brown. I was offered some tea, and then I was measured by an awkward man. It will be made in a week! I'm excited.
Well I will post more stories later. Got to pay attention to my game of spades. I'm losing.
3) I'm back. I got second place.
4) The rain is starting. I went up to the roof right when I got back from the day care today to take some pictures of the approaching rainstorm...and the little girl across the alley was looking out her window. She called across to me, "Are you taking PHOTOS?", and after I nodded, she ran back inside, grabbed her younger sibling, and then ran back to the window. Attached is the picture. =)
5) The little girl at the day care with the amazing smile learned how to roll her tongue. Also attached is that picture, because it is hilarious.
6) I got to see my little boy, Ronis (spelling?), walk home with his older brother today! It was sweet. The kids here are so caring for their younger siblings, and for other people's younger siblings. At the day care, older kids start showing up around 4. If a toddler falls down hard enough to start crying (these kids don't cry that easily), some older child will usually pick the kid up and give him or her a reassuring hug and then run along. It is really cool to see! Some do get in little arguments...and other children usually settle the problem with a few words. Kids don't need to be babied as much as we think in the US perhaps!
