| Anna enjoyed reconnecting with her village friends
|| Her village brother was happy to cook her sweet potato again
|| She liked hanging out with her village grandparents
|| She couldn't get enough rides in her new cardboard car
|| Watch out! She is mobile now!
|| Going on a walk with Daddy
| She began learning how to carry a bilum
|| Her friends are very inventive in creating their own toys
|| Becca discovered the hard work
involved in harvesting coffee. First you pick each bean by hand.
|| Then each person contributes what they have picked to the larger bilum
|| A bilum full of coffee can weigh over 50lbs.
|| This machine takes the outer hull off the beans
| Then you have to wash off the sticky pulp
|| The final step is to dry the beans
|| Danny helped to dig a deep hole for our septic system
|| This is part of the breathtaking trail to visit the series of dams the people built on the mountainside
|| Along the trail this boy found a leaf almost bigger than he was
|| Pictures can't fully capture how steep and slippery the trails were
| The wall of this dam is under construction
|| This completed dam is about the size of a backyard swimming pool
|| Each dam requires a massive amount of labor to construct
|| In this photo you can see two of the fourteen dams that formed this complex series
|| Anna enjoyed the outing
|| Back at Ukarumpa we gave Jonathan, Becca's brother, a huge yam. This is an important Wantoat custom.
