After a month in the big big city, a night out in the boonies is wonderful. The air is unpolluted. The birds, crickets, jackals, and frogs serenaded us to sleep. We loved introducing our little one to bananas on a banana tree, pomegranates on a pomegranate tree .. . mango blossoms soon to be mangoes! We loved the animals all around — O laughed so much at the sight of a puppy playing. It was good to get used to eating rice three times a day while sitting on the ground .. . throwing the bones to the meowing cat next to us. I was impressed at how much rice my kids could eat (when there were no other options)!
