red. white. and blue

i hope everyone had a happy independence day.
we sure did.
the pictures above are from the festivities (parade and carnival).
people would boat in from villages near and far to join in the fun.
YES. it was still a cold over cast day,
but seeing all the excited faces made the day what it was.
the carnival was my favorite part.
since there are no real games or rides, people had to be inventive.
the picture above with the soda bottles is a game of ring toss.
the kids loved it.
the last picture is me with the owner of subway.
since she is the keeper of my diet coke we have become good friends.
life here is
- - - - - - - -
all phones in bethel are dead again.
so if anyone called in the past 2 days and it went straight to voicemail
trust me, we are not screening your calls.
we just don't have any phone service.
they said it should be fixed tonight.
keep your fingers crossed.
