Lovely Day

Another sunny morning despite rain overnight.

Flavian joined me for breakfast and escorted me to the Catholic Church. African time prevails: the 7:45 meet for breakfast occurred after 8:00, the 8:30 mass began at 9. The church was almost full and the choir was composed of secondary school students. There are no mass or song books but some people bring their bible to follow along. Flavian hung out with me the rest of the day on the porch. It was a beautiful day, the weather was particularly nice. In the afternoon I took the kites I had brought out to the children and we watched as they ran around trying to get them to fly. The Lutheran pastor came by around dinner and visited a while. I enjoyed hearing about his community projects. He is also tackling sustainability aspects.
