Addie Talley- "I love reading your posts.... what is the weather/temps like there? What do the locals normally wear? What foods do you normally eat?"
The weather here couldn't be more perfect. It normally stays between 60-80. It's still overcast and rainy, but they say we are entering the dry season and it's weird to still be this way in October. I went on a walk today, and it drizzled, but it felt so nice. The ladies here wear cortes (skirts), fajas (belts), and beautiful hand woven shirts. The cortes are a piece of fabric that get wrapped around you and held up with the faja. Here is a pic of Yeni with her corte and faja.
I don't have any pics of the food I normally eat, but will start taking pics and do a post on food after I've gathered enough.
Marilyn Reid- "How lovely that they celebrate their children. I enjoy your blog Julia. You are an amazing young lady and I'm wondering how long you are staying there this time? I don't remember reading how long. I'm sure the orphanage is very grateful for all your help. A friend of mine when she was in nursing school about 20 years ago went there to help people who were living in a land fill. She said it was such an eye opener. Keep up the good work."
Thanks Marilyn! At times it's hard, and I really appreciate your comment. And just thank you to everyone who have left me some. The first time I came it was only 1 month, but this time I'm here for 3 months, so a total of 4. I go home on November 30th.
A few days ago I was relaxing with Edy and Katie took this pic without me knowing. Edy's been having some really good days lately with almost no crying at all. I really love cuddle time with him.
