JoAnn is my main liason here.

Marion is very welcoming and helpful, too.

Marion and everyone here is so kind and generous.

We work through the heat and take our breaks beneath trees, where workers sip tea and carouse.

One night Jim and I asked JoAnn to take us for a ride to town just to be in the air-conditioned car! Driving is terrifying, and if there are rules, you can’t tell it. Roads are little more than paths in most places, and they are shared by people, animals and cars without much consideration each for the other.

    Lynne, Jim, and Jo –and the pig with piglets — your pictures are GREAT! Sorry I can’t do something about the heat to cool you off. I loved the story about driving in the air-conditioned car. I can relate to that!! Love to each one of you. Cec

    I reviewed the pictures this afternoon –a respite from the tedious work I was doing– and they were all clear –even Marian’s. Glad I took took the time to review. Cec

    Great to see the pics of you, Jim, and JoAnn. You all look hot and tired, but fulfilled and fantastic! It was a frigid 15 degrees this morning here in St. Louis, so I suspect we are each wishing we could trade climates. Miss you and love you all! Faye
