Wow – I’m back, yet it feels like I never left. Although so much has changed; the orphanage is 3 weeks to being finished, new bathrooms/showers, we have grass!, the kids have more personality than ever and speaking very good English. I truly believe we have thee coolest kids in the village. I’m so happy to call Mt. Meru “home”. The beauty is unreal. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. I can’t remember the last time I worked this hard – I’m constantly needed whether it be in the kitchen (cooking or dishes, so many dishes), with the kids, at the school teaching, helping volunteers or teaching English to Kaaya’s cousin. But I love every minute of it. I admit I get a bit frustrated cooking dinner by candle light, using one propane burner and hauled water for 20 people 3 times a day… But this experience is priceless and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
