Writer's block

All in all, I would have to say that our first four days in rural Burundi have been wonderful.  There have been the usual challenges of life in Africa (eg. intermittent electricity, needing to filter your water, the occasional unwanted house guest … eg. termites, geckos and maybe mice), but overall, it has been really really great.  The long-term missionary families here have been incredibly gracious and helpful in getting us settled in.  We have had so many new experiences, sights, sounds, and smells, that I have no idea where to begin.  I suppose over the next few months stories will come out and descriptions of all the ways that life is different here will be articulated, but for now, I just don’t even know where to begin.  So, a few photos.
