the last of our time with Bibi

pumsika means to relax and after a whirlwind couple of weeks doing teacher training, teaching, visiting, hanging with Skuli kids and general chaos that seems to abound at our house we all needed a couple days to just pumsika. Bibi treated our family to a few days at a hotel on the coast and we were all to happy to vacate our house since for 2 days there was no power at our place...do we have great timing or what? Although the hotel restaurant never seemed to have what was on the menu and at one point we waited almost 5 hours for some juice (let's just agree that Africa is NOT the land of instant gratification) it was relaxing and beautiful. We all devoured books, soaked in sun, collected enough shells to fill a suitcase, swam, slept, ate food that we did not cook or clean up, and talked. It was awesome!

applying obscene amounts of sunscreen and just chillin'

time to read and lay by the pool enjoying the breeze

that ocean breeze can get chilly so cuddling was necessitated

we only heard rumors about the "sleepover" happenings in Anni & Bibi's room but apparently they were crazy!

on the drive back into town we stopped by a butterfly centre on the island and two little girls dressed the part

it is a really cool place where they teach locals how to farm and raise the butterflies

it was sweltering up in there so after a bit a butterfly chasing and oggling we headed out

lucky for us there was a local ice cream man just down the road....a refreshing snack for the drive home was in order

and so there ends our time with Bibi Rhoda. She is missed so much already!
