If you need a toothbrush, fruit, etc. you go to a small little place in the market to buy one, it's all new to me. One of my favorite friends is a child named Happy, and let me tell you: she is wonderful. She comes to Mass every morning all by herself to celebrate with us. We invented a special handshake that we do and she has taught all of the other children...she’s great. One image that remains with me is of the women carrying water – a daily occurrence in most of their lives. As I told you all before, we have been without water for 3 weeks and did the whole bucket thing but Sister Dionisia surely didn’t carry them on our heads. The children start from small containers and work up to the buckets. There are 3 year old twins at the place we go to fetch water and they already carry giant buckets like this full of water. Amazing!
