Monday, August 21, Holiday in Rwanda for the end of Ramadan
It is interesting how you are responding so positively to the cows in my back yard. They are good company. Jerome also asked me if I would like some goats. I would dearly love some--we'll see what comes of it! I don't know who gets the milk from the cows--possibly the patients at the hospital.
I am in good spirits today. I actually got a guard to bring me (oh, yes, guards are everywhere here--this was the guard from the school compound) a match box so I could light a match. (Some matches had been left here without a way to strike them! They are little tiny wax matches.) I lit the burner on my stove and began the process of sterilizing the ceramic cones that go into my water purification system. That's a big step. Once I get it all set up I won't have to buy bottled water any more. With fire, now I can even boil water if I wish!!
Enjoy the cows.
