The week went by SO fast… although the nights seemed to drag on due to the fact that it was SO hot! The only way we could stay cool was to wet a sheet and spread that over us with a fan blowing. It didn’t even take one hour and the sheet was dry and we were so hot. Well, we made it through the week – Jamie was doing medical work each day in different villages, and I was teaching in the DTS for the week.
A highlight of the week was when Daniel took us to his village – 30 km out of Madurai. It was the place where he grew up with his brother, mother and grandmother. What an honor it was to be invited in to share a fresh chicken meal made especially for us by Daniel’s mother and grandmother. Being the only white people in the village did draw some attention to the neighbours – even some standing outside the door looking in to get a glimpse. It was an amazing evening shared with new friends!
Friday, August 8 – Heading to the furthest point south in the continent!!
