Day 12

Our first stop of the day was to the bazaar.. one of the largest in the world... it is a real experience ... just making it in and out without getting lost can be a task... We had Sergei and Anya bring in extra help from town to work as guides for the team... we split into small groups with a max. of three people per translator... This worked well and everyone had a great time.... For lunch we went back to the Metro where we met up with some other mission friends as well as to pick up one of the waitresses that wanted to come to the baby house with us. It was so great to have the opportunity to play with the kids... it was one of the highlights for the team .. like the prize at the end of the race.... when it came time to leave, we did a slow detachment, getting the kids playing with each other, and slowly removing team members from the playground.... and we did it.... no babies crying.... and only a few team members crying....

From there it was one last stop at the department store then back to the guest house to finish packing the bags for the 3am departure.
