Joanne and I switched tasks and then Apasa was going on about how Joanne (aka Juanita to them) is such a fast learner, "Juanita's la jefa, la maestra,"blah blah. Later he wanted to say something to her and they both looked at me to translate. I said "nope, talk to your friend!" which got laugh.
By the time we left for the day, the building looked pretty good. The guys stayed back to work a bit longer.
We walked down the street to the school where GVI volunteers teach, and the kids seemed so fascinated by Joanne and Michael, for some reason they love the Chinese and always make sure to mention they're Chinese! On the bus home Alice, our signature redhead, told me the kids fiddle with her and then all of a sudden she feels a yank, and when she reacts they tell her they take it because it’s such a pretty color. Yikes, stay her for a year and you might go bald!
