the color green...part 2

The last weekend of February I was able to go to the countryside again with my friends. I loved visiting the area so much back in January, I told them if I get the chance again, I will definitely go again! I love going on countryside adventures!

We left in the morning and went straight to church. After church, some of the kids and I walked down to the rice fields to walk around, explore and get some photos.

The boys loved jumping back and forth for the rice fields to the large rocks we were standing on. Though Mihary (in above photo), lost his balance and flew into the muddy rice fields a couple of times.

After lunch time, we all went out walking and exploring the area. We walked up and down hills, through peanut fields, and through rice fields. We had a lot of fun and the beauty around me was amazing.

This (photo above) is my friends family house in the countryside. They also have a store, as you see in the photo above (the window to the right), where they sells snacks and other little things.

The teens had fun either taking my iPhone or my camera at times to get photos of each other. This photo above was taken with my camera by Fita's cousin Hasina.

I might have mentioned this before, but I love the sibling relationship between Sahaza and her brother Fita. To me, they are like best friends, which they probably are. I can see how much they love each other and how close they are. 

 Sahaza full of smiles!

Thank you so much Lalaina and family for letting me come along with you guys both weekends. I had so much fun!

One memory that I will never forget, though it wasn't the best...I was bit by some type of small insect, similar to a bee. It was the most painful bite ever, and had to take off my pants for a minute, to make sure the singer wasn't somewhere in my jeans. It eventually was swollen, itchy and theres still a scar on my leg from the bite.
