During our most recent village trip, Kara was asked to help the local choir learn some new songs to prepare for an upcoming competition. It was a challenge considering the notation system is different, they have changed the names for the solfege (ti is now si) and the songs had some very difficult parts. However, Kara did great and the choir loved it! We also just made them some “practice tapes,” actually mp3s these days, so they can continue to learn their parts well.
Here’s some pictures below from the trip, in no particular order:

The road through town
Charlotte eating a fried whole fish, tail first (her favorite part!)
Elizabeth doing the same, and Grandma getting the photographic evidence.
Our girls and some friends. Our tablet is a big hit…

These photos are from an older trip, but they’ve never been posted so I’m putting them in here:
