Singing and Ridin' Dirty

This is what I woke up to this morning. It was great! This is how the Care for Life staff begin their meetings every Monday and this is how we do transportation in Mozambique... well... that is if you are lucky enough to get to ride on the back of a pickup truck. Otherwise you have to hitch a ride on the local mini vans (which are usually very packed), walk, or ride on the back of someone's old bike. Riding on the back of pick up trucks here is an adventure in and of itself. This camper we are in gets really hot and uncomfortable. One time we saw about thirty people crowd onto the back of a truck. When they jumped off the truck it was like the circus had come to town!

wow transportation sounds interesting. its crazy that you have to ride in the back of a truck or squeeze in with a bunch of people on a tiny van. i'm glad you're safe and thanks for taking the time to post...i'm loving it.

so any cute African guys yet???? how many guys want you to be their "queen"

I'm thinking out of all the choices the riding in the back of an old bike sounds the safest. Be careful Yode. you are brave in capturing little films here and there, I dont know how you do it, but make sure its always safe.

Love you,
