Hot times in Lospalos. Technically we are still in the rainy season, but it hasn’t rained but once a week for the past few which makes it pretty hot and steamy in the afternoons. We did get water today though which is nice. Usually it is on for an hour a day but since Good Friday its not come on and we were out, scraping the bottem of our two huge concrete tanks that we usually use to bath, cook, etc…
Monica is back working full time and I’ve gone from “Mr. Tom” to “Mr. Mom,” doing house chores and taking care of kids with little time for much else, but loving every minute of it (ususally). About three times during the busy morning I take Simon over to the clinic to nurse and carry him back or sit on the front porch with friends and talk. I also sneek off to the internet to read the news in an effort to rekindle my obsession with current affairs after having taken a 6 month break from the world. Hows Obama doing? Ugg….
Simon is just great though. He’s huge for Timor. Yesterday Monica saw a 6 month old that weighed less than him which was a stark reminder of the malnutrition in the world.
Thats the news from Lospalos.
