Province Life

We recently went to Nasuli, about a 4 hour trip from here. On this trip we had the opportunity to go to a village. We visited with a wonderful lady named BeBe who has worked with SIL since she was 17.


She gave us our first taste of durian. None of us were too impressed with it. It tastes like a mix of rotting onion and fresh garlic. Some people absolutely love it. We've been told it takes several times of trying it to acquire a taste for it.

She walked us around her village. Here are some photos from that walk.

Kurt blogged about a skylab. Here's another sort of transportation used in the provinces.
