  3. Mozambique Local Helpers

    The building of our fence became a neighborhood event, and these kids showed up to "help out."  If nothing else, they provided reliable entertainment and comic relief.

  9. Mozambique Bubble-Blowing Lesson

    Neighborhood kids constantly come over to play and ask for drawing materials and magazines, and one day when they came to ask for soap for blowing bubbles, we had a bubble-blowing extravaganza.  Here, my sitemate is showing them how to blow big bubbles with their hands.

  10. Mozambique Cooking Lesson

    During our PST, we had a cooking lesson with our Mozambican host families to learn how to prepare several traditional dishes.  Here, a fellow PCV is displaying her adept skills for pounding matapa leaves.
