A Fun Saturday

Today was another great day.  Thankfully it was a day of relaxation and moving in a much slower pace.  Everyone got to sleep and extra hour and a half which was greatly appreciated.  Then we kind of meandered through Swaziland stopping at a few places along the way.  Before we knew it, it was dark.

There are just a few pictures from today because it was such a relaxed day.  One of the things we did was to visit the Swazi Cultural Center where we saw a traditional Swazi homestead and learned the significance of each of the grass huts and their placement.  Then we watched Swazi dances and a few even tried them.  Finally we walked about 700 meters to beautiful Mantenga falls.

Some of the team members learning how to dance like Swazis.

Lee tried to move a few rows back so he wouldn't be picked to dance, but the girl got him before he had a chance to get away. I don't know why he thought he had to hide because he did really well.

Carlie was cute. She was trying to follow the Swazi girl but finally gave up and just did the Monkey! She had fun .

The team at Mantenga Falls.

I probably will not post anything tomorrow.  It’s going to be a relaxed day.  Church followed by lunch and then the afternoon doing whatever.  The girls are going out to dinner with ladies from my bible study to celebrate the birthday of a missionary here with Adventures in Mission and my birthday.  I’m sure we will have a great time.

  1. Looks like you guys had great fun today.

    Happy Birthday to you!

    Morgan’s birthday is this week also (Thursday the 3rd) and one of the other boy’s birthday is the same day but I can’t remember which one! Michael maybe?

    Anyway, I am so glad that things are going well on the job site and that the team is getting to experience some Swazi culture as well!

    Thank you for all of your updates!
