AFRICA WAS SO COOL!!!!!!

I've got 10 non-edited pictures for you. the edited will come later. June 4-June 5: Get up at 3AM, get on a plane to Minn.-3 hrs., eat Chili at Chilies(horrible idea) hop on a plane to Amsterdam-8 hrs. feel like YUCK, hop off the plane, get on another plane(feeling like junk) to Kili.-8 hrs.. By now, i want to throw up...grab a bag and I get sick. Don't tell anyone(dad's in front, haley's sleeping, then gets up and chats about starbursts and makes me even more sick! haha) I then try to sleep - almost impossible. I sit on this plane FOR 8 HOURS WITHOUT GETTING UP ONCE!!!!!!! makes me worse- get to immigration in Kilimanjaro, throw up water-literally, then feel tons better. get to Arusha, and SLEEP!!!!!! June 6-saturday: Go to Mairowa(the school) - a 3 hour drive on a bumpy, dirt road, and cannot get out of the car there are so many kids around us!! (like below) and they all stand there staring at you(especially if you have blond hair, glasses and braces) then, the feeding-where they eat with their hands. (cute edited)(this ones not) go to hotel - an 8x8 room w/ concrete floors, and 2 beds.( i loved mairowa)June 7: also in mairowa, giving out sunflower cards(cards from sponsers at home) and teaching creation lesson. visit bomas, including our sponser, Faraja. go back to "hotel".June 8: go back to Arusha(city)(with nicer hotel) and, play cards with Haley.
