Masimo

This past Saturday April 17, Taylor and I (Amanda) were invited to go to the fields (Masimo in Setswana) with Taylor’s nanny, Bantle, and another lady in the church named Mma Adom. Before leaving I was told we would leave at 7am and return by 10am, well that was silly of me to think that would actually be true. I think we ended up getting home at about 3:30pm but we had a great time visiting with Bantle’s family and picking some corn, watermelon, sweet reeds, and beans. When I was asked to go with them, it was such an honor as in this culture people normally don’t invite you into their homes or lands. Taylor did not want to come home because she enjoyed playing in the dirt so much.
