Chickens, dogs and goats roam freely everywhere. Pets are uncommon as everything is potential dinner. (see thanksgiving dinner at Jon's)

Reminded me of why I like children more than adults.Isabelle shopping for apples. Should mention that she received two proposals for marriage before we got to Kara and by the time we left Africa we had lost count (at least twenty). We had to tactfully tell those interested that she had to go back home to her father in America and was not available for marriage yet.This is an iron in one of the tailor shops at the market. Hot coals provide the heat. Most sewing machines are old treadle Singers and the finished work is better than most in the states.
