This was a good day today, we were all happy, fed and enjoying life. We started out early to get to the zoo before it got hot and the animals all hid in the shade. Yes, I did take pictures, and no, I have no idea how to get them to you yet. I'm going to think a bit more about it. Bill is currently still in transit so I can't ask him.
We were at the zoo for 4.5 hours and Alex got burnt where she didn't suncreen carefully enough. Our feet were pretty tired so we hung out and relaxed in the room for a bit. I actually tubbed for a while. the tub looks like it should be deep, but it really wasn't any deeper than my one at home, it just looks cooler and, I guess it is more comfortable even if it isn't bigger.
We walked to a little grocery store, checked out a little bakery and then stopped at a restaurant. We ordered three dishes I thought, but only really got two and then didn't finish because we were full anyway. Grand total in USA money $4.00. Calliandra has been doing a good job translating as best she can, it makes a huge difference in our ability to get around on our own and I'm grateful.
We came back and are all so tired from getting up early and walking so far in the heat that we're heading to bed way before we thought we would. Basicall as soon as I'm done typing this, I'm done for the night.
On the plus side, I am starting to get more interaction from her, She put on another piece of new clothing to sleep in, and she hasn't asked to call Bethel or any of her friends from there for moral support as she did the first two days. Prayers that our bonding continues to improve though, even with these advancements we have a long way.
