A very busy day .. but a lot of fun !

Breakfast at the yurt camp

Last night we had the yurt all set up and ready for the kids from one of the orphanages.  They got in late after a big day in Bishkek.  

some of the kids settling in for the night 

after breakfast they all went for a walk in the mountains 

the first craft was a foam boat 

everyone made one and decorated it 

then went to the water trough to try them out 

next up was a game of frisby Kuk-baru  a knock off of the goat pull game but no horses and frisbys instead 

lots of fun and burned off a little more energy 

the next craft consisted of 15 little items that the kids put in a bottle with seeds, then on the lid they tied a list of the items to find .. the cool thing is that the list is in Kyrgyz Russian and English 

it kept the kids busy for a long time 

then for lunch we had hotdogs on the fire 

at the same time we had the horses for horse back rides .. 

I only had 10 hot dog sticks made u so we were busy restocking them, and the horses kept the pressure off the food 

I think Yuri had about eight of them 

After the horses and lunch Vladic did some allusions for the kids 

then it was back inside for another craft 

It was nice to see Nuric take such interest in his 

everyone loved this soo much 

Next we took the kids fishing to catch supper 

every one caught a fish 

We have gotten so much use from the Berkeley fishing equipment that was donated to us by Berkeley last year 

then it was back to the farm to have a shore lunch and to pick corn 

Isar was the cook today .. He did a great job 

then sat down and ate with the kids . 
  At the end of the day we walked down to the corner to check out the playground that the farm is sponsoring for kids in the village .  

This is the only playground in the village ,and the kids loved it , It was neat to see word spread and kids come running out to see . 

At one point we counted 14 kids on the slide at once.

I have a small catalog  that has a hole bunch of other cool playground equipment ranging in price from $100 to $1000 .  the prices all include instillation and delivery . so the hope is that this is the center piece and slowly we are able to build and expand the playground around it .  So when things slow down here I will post the information in case someone else wants to sponsor a new piece ..
