1. Macedonia A ride around the neighborhood

    This picture took place during our first month living with our host family.  My host mother told me something in Macedonia and, as usual, I had no clue what she was saying, but followed her out the door.  What a fun surprise to see our chariot waiting to take us for a ride around the block!

    Buru's dog PuPup is nursing her brood. Look closely and you'll see that the puppy on the right is a kitten. Buru raised PuPup himself and carefully watched her nutrition while she was pregnant. He did such a good job of caring for her that she found it completely natural to care for the orphaned kitten.
