On Wednesday we went to another childrens' home. It's not a home it's just where they sometimes learn English, do homework, get fed, and play games. We got there before all the kids showed up. All of us waited for about ten minutes for kids to come in after school. When they came in they were all really shy. The lady asked my parents if they were teachers and they said yes. They were pretty happy about that.
The next day when we arrive all the kids came up and gave us hugs. This one girl wouldn't let go of me the whole entire time. Mom taught the girls English and dad taught the boys English. There was one boy who was trying to really learn English. It was kind of funny. At the end they wouldn't let us leave until we said we would be back again tomorrow!
On Saturday we went to a market. We got warned by so many people (police officers, security guards, and random people) to watch our stuff. One guy said they would beat us up, spit on us and take all our stuff. We didn't stay out too much longer as we didn't feel safe. We went to a 'questionable' restaurant for lunch that made us all feel sick. Some of us got the runs but that's about it.
Sunday Sophia, Dad, and I went river rafting. It was so much fun. We took a two hour bus up a local river and we were two hours on the river. At the end three of us jumped in the water and floated back where there was only a little rapid. It was so cold and I am so glad that I hadn't fallen out before.
