Just Some More Pictures
I realize that these pictures don't mean a whole bunch to you, but they stand for many different experiences in our lives these past few weeks. They represent getting earrings in the hospital by hand and needing "daddy" to replace them later. They represent eating at the Mr Ngam's house where the electricity went off during the meal so the rest of the meal was eaten with light from flashlights (the hospital area has a generator that comes on while the village area does not and we live around the hospital). A traditional Com wedding in the rain is interesting with a blessing and talk first by the pastor then the party begins. Most of the "ceremony" takes place in the kitchen (packed with people, of course) where the MC acts like a comedian makings sure all parties are having fun while moving through the rituals. As you can see, the food is less than sterile, but I found it quite good.
