We found some Avocados (aka Butter Pears in Liberia) in the market the other day. Alex whipped up some guacamole and we had some yummy comfort food for small small money. :)
The three girls and I also ventured to the market by ourselves. We needed a laundry basket and some fabric to make some skirts.
We used Christmas money from our folks and we bought around 8 yards of fabric for just under $15. The first 5 yards I was a swift negotiator. :) The last 3 yards I caved in negotiating because there were some men nearby yelling at the girls, "Hey, I want you to be my woman!" and other crazy words. I decided it was time to purchase and run.
We did get some beautiful fabric (or "cloth" as a Liberian would say).
The laundry basket has become a shoe basket so I need to go back to the market.
When we were in the market Beth carried this basket on her head. I wished I had a camera. We bought potato greens, bananas, fabric, peppers and green onions and put them in the basket on Beth's head. Someone yelled, "White African!" at us as we passed by. It made us laugh.
Then we had this sweet little visitor. His name is baby Dax and he belongs to one of the guys Eric works with.
Beth and Lucy have been babysitting a Mongoose. Her name is Bri and she lives upstairs with the guest house proprietors. The girls love babysitting her. Lucy even found a story in her Literature book about a Mongoose and how it eats snakes. She is convinced that we need a Mongoose of our own to protect us from snakes. I'm not sold on the idea. ;)
At first that little creature gave me the willies. But now, those eyes are kind of growing on me. But don't tell Beth and Lucy. :)
