Sorry for the absence but I was a few days ahead of myself;)
This weekend we had the delight of having 8 of the older boys from lazares visit the ship. It was a pure delight to see the joy on their faces as we toured the ship- taking them to play up on deck 8 with special permission, where there's a climbing frame. Funny part is that the boys were terRIFIED of heights and would not go up. If they did we had to go get them down when they freaked out:)
We then got to go on the bridge, go to the engine room, then dinner, which was hilarious. You certainly learn about what cultures eat what when you put salad and spaghetti in front of these kiddos;) They never have fresh veggies so they are afraid of them and they don't really do pasta... Only rice.
When we said bye, there was a cloud of sadness surrounding us. We could sense that they are growing aware of the ships departure. Little do they know I leave 2 weeks before that. This is going to be tough.
Here are some pics of the day!!;)
