This morning we ate breakfast and Richard led devotions. We then headed to Kisanet school to paint the library.
When we arrived, we discovered that the paint had not been delivered yet. While Kiersten and some of the guys went to figure it out, we played with the kids and received lots of letters from them.
After lunch, we went back to Kisanet to continue painting. In a little while, Chris, Kelsi, Tiffany, Weldie, Yohannes, Tadesse and I left to go buy books for the library. We walked down the street to find a taxi, and were followed by dozens of kids who were getting out of school for the day.
It was the first time I've ever ridden in an Ethiopian public taxi, and it was quite the experience. People were packed into the van like sardines, and I got to sit on one of the wheel wells. We went to several book stores, where the men negotiated prices.
We decided to stay in for dinner, so after showering we met in the hotel restaurant. I was getting so tired and slap happy, and began giggling at every little thing. Larisa and I stayed up until about 12:30 talking. Tomorrow we head to Samre for sponsorship distribution day! I'm excited about seeing more of the countryside and meeting more kiddos!
