We're so happy to be home again and so super grateful for a very blessed trip. Here are some pics...
|so fun to travel with this dear friend (on the left) and fun for Vivi be her help to meet new neighbors too|
|the sweet family we stayed with in the cantaloupe capital city|
|we were treated with so kindly, so super generously by our friends who hosted us in their homes|
|oh these kind friends!|
|we toured a site where kings of old were buried... and they had a small plaque honoring three western ladies that had travelled through this region for good reason about a hundred years ago (I think) by donkey cart.|
|and so is watermelon.... everywhere.... and Vivi always has room for more|
|we got to pose for a pic with the performers in a cool cultural show at the museum|
|my dear friend Karen and the grandma who hosted us for our last dinner in town|
|back in the provincial capital, my girlfriends painted my nails and toenails with traditional henna stains (the color will be there until my nails grow out!) and some non-traditional (except in India/ Pakistan!) henna tattoos on my feet.|
|my girlfriends, in their home city again|
And hopefully you saw the pics of Matt and Isaiah's trip there too? We divided and conquered this summer- to save kiddo airfare and help us be more mobile on the ground. The middle two missed out on traveling but they're both getting double birthday parties this summer... and that makes everything good for them!
