I had my first ride in a trike which was lots of fun! Usually 3 people fit inside this little side car and one usually rides up behind the driver. We have seen more people squish inside and a couple of people behind a driver, but fortunately for me there were only 2 of us inside on this ride. I can't imagine how another adult would have squished in! It is amazing what these little trikes can carry! Who needs a pick up truck when you have one of these little babies!
The one picture I wanted to take most was of a family on a motorbike with a little child up in front of his dad, and a mom holding a squirming child behind. Helmets? What are those! We have seen this many times, but they always ride by too quickly for us to catch a picture. We hope you find the following pictures we have spotted on our travels. You might not see this is America!
|Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to work we go!|
|Bringing their wares to be sold in the markets.|
|Which is bigger, the load or the carrier?|
|Have a fridge to move? No problem!|
|Capturing the wind!|
|A few clay pots anyone?|
|Jewish Presence in the Philippines?|
To finish this section off, here is a very threatening road sign....
We went on many teaching appointments since I wrote last, but didn't take too many pictures. It seems that rainy season is beginning. We were in one house trying to teach, when all of a sudden the skies opened up and there was such thunder, lightning and POURING rain on the hot tin roof, that we were shouting at each other to be heard. We finally gave up on that idea. We couldn't hear a thing. I tried including a movie of that, but it was taking forever to load. Guess you miss out on that experience!
|Here is a family that is excited about putting|
together their family history! They are all working
|This was the calm before the storm. I have to mention that|
it was 40 degrees C this day. There is a humidex reading
that lets you know what it feels like with the humidity.
That brought it up to 56 degrees C! The sky finally opened up!
|This was a Family Home Evening we got to be a part of.|
This is only part of the crowd. There is always dinner, a
lesson and games. Such fun!
|These trees are filled with hundreds of bats! I wish you could|
see them in those branches, hanging upside down. You're just
going to have to trust me!
