We've been busy, but we've found a little time to take in more of the local culture. Yesterday, I tried some food from one of the street vendors. I had checked with some of the long term volunteers here to see if it was safe before I ate it. It was very good, kinda like a meat pie - if you know what that is. It was basically a fried pocket of something savory. I don't know what it was, but it was good.
I did a little shopping today with the artisans on the street too. I bought a wooden mortal and pestal that is made out of mahogony. It is hand carved, and it is very colorful.
There is an old palace here in Milot, and I took a tour of that with three other people today. It was very interesting.
Thanks again for your prayers. I'll post photos when I'm home.
