Riaan and Phoebe came to visit! Everybody said Phoebe and I must be identical twins. Judge for yourself. Riaan had multiple requests from our female neighbors to cut off his golden locks and give them the wig. Thanks to Phoebe and her awesome tutoring of our neighbors kids who have limited educational opportunities, 4 year old Odong can hold a pen and draw pictures, 6 year old Moi has started to read, and 12 year old Rachael now knows that the world is round and that there are more than two continents (her previous opinion was that there was Africa, and then the continent where everyone else lived).

Exotic bird? War plane? Spirits of ebola-fighting hospital heroes laid to rest?
