Good Morning Family and Friends!

A chance to sleep in for us-it felt great! A few of us headed down the road to a school supply store to help support Hashiyana School in the north. We bought many of the basic supplies such as pens, pencils, papers, rubbers, pencil sharpeners, chalk, etc. The women who ran the store were very helpful and even gave us a nice discount to bring their support.

Not knowing what our week would look like yet, most of us sat down to organize our activities for the week. We decided to go horseback riding today. We found a wonderful place at the base of the mountains called Equatrails. Sam was kind enough to provide transportation for us to and from her place. The horses had great names but the best, by far, was Sally’s horse which was named The Devil’s Donkey. Sally was a little hesitant to ride him but she survived! We rode through the trails along the bottom of the mountains for about an hour. The intermediate riders tried to trot but Sam immediately stopped us; apparently we did not pass! We had a blast and the scenery was an added plus!

Once back at the house and finished dinner, we walked to a restaurant called Garlic and Flowers for drinks. Jessie and Kyle introduced us to their friends, Nelayo and Penny. Nelayo’s mother owns the restaurant. They gave us a very warm welcome and a fun filled night with lots of singing and interesting conversations.

Another fantastic find and a great way to end the night!
