Where I live these days...

Small sampling of what life here looks like: 
My room (downstairs right by the phone-which is a bummer when people call at 6 a.m. or 11 p.m.!)

Pet emu! Yes, I know this is really cool! 

My two companeras! We have our own rooms, but share a kitchen and take turns cooking and cleaning.  These girls are so great! They are from La Paz and Cochabamba Bolivia. 

We have sports 2 days a week. Usually volleyball or soccer--until I taught them to play ultimate frisbee.  It was a hit-which I'm personally very excited about!  This is one of our first days playing. Every time has included lots of laughter--and bruises! 

This is my garden at the very beginning. It looks much better now...I'll have to remember to take my camera with me.  I'm mostly excited about the pumpkins!!! 

My room. 

This is another picture of the building I live in--it's right beside the volleyball court. 

Cold showers=really fast showers! 

bathrooms are in the same building as the showers. 

We handwash our clothes.  You never realize how quickly your clothes get dirty until you have to handwash them. And it is a lot of work.  Remember to thank the Lord for your washing machine today!

We will get to use this in a week when we have our rustic living class for three weeks.  This will be so interesting! 

This is the back of the classroom...and below is the front of the classroom!
All the students + a baby! We are from Bolivia, USA, Argentina and Chile.  Funny things happen when we assume we know what one word means-because even between South American countries words have different meanings...
