Next was a trip around the valley.. We began the stop at the orphanage for children with learning difficulties. It is a really well run orphanage, and it was great to meat up with some of our friends . They were all doing so well. Then the next stop was over to the seniors home where we had delivered a huge load of food supplies for them. The cupboards were bare a few days ago, but now they are full. Babushka Anya was thrilled to give Benjamin a big hug and kiss as well. We went over to Vera's community center. We brought her some money for the seniors day celebration next week. We were also able give her the final payment for the building... it is officially paid off... very exciting.
Next stop was over to Aigoola's house for a visit and a nice lunch. After lunch we headed back to the apartment in time for Benjamin to give a guitar lesson to a couple young friends of ours that lost everything in the uprising in Osh. They don't know it yet, but the guitar they are playing will be a gift to them before Benjamin leaves.
Then we finished the day off with a trip out to the rehab center with Jengish. They had a great meal for us ad they were very appreciative of Benjamin singing for them . It was also a last meal with our friend Bob before he headed back home.
