Janie's perspective at El Monte

These rectangle thingies with pink stripes happen to be pieces of candy. Half of the candy here has chili in it - that red one tastes sort of like a de-flavored fruit rollup!

Hello everybody!!!! This is Janie giving a couple of updates. Above is me (when I was sick on Sunday) and an adorable little dog named Chizpa (Sparky)! Today we haven't uploaded any pictures, so we'll have to deal with boring words:). Our family (except for Dad) went to the "schoolhouse" with the other MK's. It was awesome! The girls all learned a Swahili song from mom and harmonized. Also we went to p.e. and played soccer, AND threw each other up in the air with sheets! Peter Wilson caught a type of lizard that is 1 of 2 species of poisonous lizards IN THE WORLD! It was about two ft. long, a whopper to us, probably a mouse to them! We've gone to some very authentic eatery, such as a taco stand on the side of the road with a bunch of stray dogs in our faces - plus a Mexican soap opera going on in the back round. We have come across at least 50 stray dogs in the streets - some in not very good condition:(. Last night we had a "mini flood". There is a full length mirror sitting on top of the toilet that fell behind it, causing the supply pipe to break! This was about 10:45 p.m. and we're calling people to help, trying to keep all of the gushing water inside the bathroom with towels and a squeegee, and trying to get to bed at a decent hour - WHEW! It's all fixed now. We'd better get going home before we get eaten alive!!!!!!! Goodnight, all!
