Teams first day on the ground in Kyrgyzstan

The team is here safe and sound  , began the day with Eggs Benedict with home fries ... now we are ready to begin

first stop was the bazaar to get food for the orphanage , I got into a bit of a jackpot, I bought 1500 lbs of Potatoes, 750 lbs of onions, 1000 lbs of Cabbage and went to get the carrots, abut 750 lbs of them ,  It turns out that every one from east city was there selling their carrots and when I sad to one lady " All" I did not meen all that the village brought that day , so 2000 lbs later, we were ready to load the truck.

The orphange sure was excited to see all the food

Tonight we all went to Aigola's for a traditional Ploff meal.  It was special for the team as Jamie because he knew them from his very first visit, and it was special for me because I did not have to cook
