PNG photos - village life

There are three little villages close to the campus. In the afternoons, we would often take the opportunity to visit the villages and talk with the people there and play with the kids. The people in the villages were very friendly and always happy to see us. Thankfully, many of them also spoke some English, so we weren't totally dependent on our limited knowledge of Pidgin English!

Great photo that I can't take credit for because someone else on our team took it
(probably Kristen - nice shot!)

The kids loved having their picture taken...

...here in front of an election poster...

...and they really liked seeing their picture on the digital camara!

Or on the camcorder!

Hi Michael, Tina & Bene sent me the link to your blog, since they read my blog on a regular basis, too.

I browsed your blog back to the very beginnings and liked everything very much.

Your time out with NTM looks like a real blessed time (friends of mine have been on short time with NTM in Brasil) and you took great photos.

I liked to get known to you a bit - will be back and waiting for new posts :-)
