Today is Sunday, January 21st I'm writing this note to let you all know that there has been a extreme cold/flu that is affecting some in our group, me being one of them. I suffered all day in bed begging for a moment when I would stop coughing. This being said, I would like to talk about the great team caring and hospitality I have received.
From Jean and Gretchen bringing up bottled water, a soothing cold Pepsi and Sue and Marcene showing me with cough drops, essential oils and enhalers. We tried pretty much everything and I was still completely bedridden in an under-developed country. Today. I was strong enough to go out with the Team and am grateful for being capable of doing that.
Through the team grapevine I ascertained that Charles' uncle had passed away the evening before and there was a huge funeral. This event could have drew 1000 people. Well a Muslim funeral would be interesting to witness, but Mr Tom was the only one attending with him.
The other balance of team members, the one not too sick or attending funerals, went to TM to play with our kids. Everyone was low energy from the activities at the hotel swimming room and boat ride, to participating in song. Everyone just needed a nap, kids and volunteers included. When I return to blogging tomorrow, remind me to tell you about the gun shots at the funeral.
Sincerely and sulabaloong! Denise @ AidSpirit USA
