Ode to the bata

This is just a random smattering of some of the day to day stuff.

So we have to wear these batas to school now. They are these thick polyester white lab coats that make us sweat even more than normal. Our bosses insisted this year that we participate in this typically ridiculously formal Mozambican tradition. On the brighter side, people LOVE it when we wear these things and tell us we are so much more beautiful which is weird cause we're just putting on a big baggy polyester sack:-) whatever.

The view from the desk in my room is one of the things I will miss the most about our house.
It's been raining just a bit lately. Check out the rainbow. Hopefully the weather starts cooling off soon.
This is Aryan, and his mother/our friend, Ranjan in the shop their family owns.
Lately we've resumed our afternoon dates at the city plaza to watch the sunset. This photo was taken by my roomie Alexi.

  1. Every time I read your blog and see your pictures my breath is taken away. You, girl, are one heck of a chick. And Africa is one amazing finger print of God. Thank you for keeping us updated.
    You are right about "new" wearing off fast. It's the world-we always want "new" but that's not what we really want. We want Jesus.:) Some people just don't know what they want.
    LOVE YOU ERIN!!! Do you have any requests for snacks / clothes / anything from Japan??
