So the kids at the town orphange have a dose of the Chicken Pox ... if that was not bad enough, every dot has to be covered in the green mystery paint. So we had a few less with us when we went swimming with them todayThis is Anya... she is new here last week
This is my little buddy from the market. He pushes the cart for me , and is always watching for me when I am at the market.. we usually pay him way too much, and buy him a bag of fresh fruit. He was happy to see us at the watering hole, and had a turn on the raft .these two spent a little to long in the water and needed time to warm up!
... This was going to be our last week for supper with them, but now they will not get to go to Camp because they don't want to contaminate the rest of the kids. It was a treat for us because they did the cooking... We had Fried zucchini with cheese and the kids favourite...Monty.... The day was full of traditional Central Asian feasts.... we were invited to lunch today at the home of our Taxi driver... Kazbec and his family. They live on a pension of 1700 sum.. that's $61 a month. This is his compensation for being shot in the hip while he was a captain in the army in Central Asias... He now rents a car and drives taxi to help support there family... They are a very nice couple and I am sure we will use him more in the future. It turns out that her brother lives in Toronto... we will bring some things home for him. Kazbec is hoping to get work in Moscow for a couple years, so they can afford to come back to Central Asia and adopt a boy from the orphanage. Unlike international Adoption, this can be done for free... they just would like to make sure that they can provide the basic necessities .
