It's been a while since I've posted anything. Sorry folks. This month flew by with not too much to tell about. It's the cool season. We're enjoying it. It's also the dry, dusty season. Not so good, but better than what it'll be come March...
This is just a quick post. I leave tomorrow to help with training the newest group of volunteers. When I'm back, I'll write some more and post a few pictures from the past month.
This pic is some new cashews starting to grow. I love cashew season and cashew trees. The cashews hang below a cashew fruit (called an 'apple' here... you can't find regular apples anywhere except in the capital...) and the green nuts have to be roasted or burned before you can eat them safely. The fruits haven't developed yet on these trees. I'll post some pictures of those when they do. But now I understand why cashews are so expensive.
Anyway, love and miss you all. Take care,
