Suzanna is holding a one-stringed folk instrument – an ectara – popular in our part of South Asia.

Penny was thrilled to receive a rawhide bone in a box mailed to us recently from friends in the US!  She wishes someone would send some chew toys!

Very few people here have family pets, and many people are afraid of Penny; but not these friends who recently visited and enjoyed a meal with us!

We had about 60 friends over to our home.   Some of our friends cooked the entire meal in our backyard using large pots over burning coals.   After cooking food over the open fire, this man is ready to start serving.

Customs here lend literal meaning to “dinner on the ground!”  The only eating utensil is the use of the right hand.    Richard, recovering from a severe stomach virus, did not eat; so he was the photographer.

We recently attended our first wedding!  The bride was our language teacher.

How interesting to see rice being harvested and threshed in the beautiful countryside outside our city!

Note that the threshing machine is powered by foot pedals.
