Today's post is from the rehabilitation centre. It was a great celebration, and what made it most special of all was that our friend Baski was there to cook for us all... his first celebration feast that he has cooked since PI helped him with his brain tumor operation. He showed us his scar..wow it's a doozy. I found out that the Dr who operated was our friend from the Children's hospital that we work with .
|Baski gave me such a good hug... about 3 or 4 times.. I watched as he laughed and joked with the men. Such a blessing for me to see him enjoying LIFE thanks to so many of you !
|The feast started with the skinning of the lamb
|Apparently these are the best parts.
|We ate in 2 waves as there were so many there today... Mom or young friend Colya is to my right . he says hi.
|This is a feast fit for a king
|Jengish thought that the cups were to small, so he drinks his coke out of a soup bowl .
|This is the new dining hall and class room / meeting room that we helped to build. Now they will be able to add another 8 to 10 beds for the detox section.
|We found this big hole. Jengish says it is a punishment hole. men in the program that break the rules have to dig a hole ... not sure why
|But when you see Jengishes warning finger, they know to be careful
|They are making the feed trough now
|Some buddies of Jengish arrived. he did not like that he was the shortest one there and thought that they should do something about that ...after all he is the "Sultan of Sarafeemofka"
|He then attempted to show us the bees BUT
|That did not go so well for him.
|before heading on our way, we got a few jars of honey and Salad to take home with us.
|Altynai did not get to join us today , this was her first day back at school, so we made her stand and pose for her first day back to school picture ... a custom in our house hold.
