To market to market

We went to market today to price out some local food. Monday we will go shopping when we get our food budget from the school.

We had a blast looking around and trying to get used to the lay of the land.
I took lots of pictures.

This is how we got to the market

If you look closely you can see me next to the one in green.

It is very crowded at the market ( and a little stinky)

Trying to find out how much bananas are

People are very helpful

The bags of liquid are soda pop

This little one kept saying Hi, Hi, Hi

This lady was bagging and wanted us to give her pesos

Fancy pineapple cutting

On the way home we got a pedicab, we fit all seven of us in it!

When we flagged down the pedicab we had two of them fighting over us!

Well last night I was on swing shift which means that I was on from 2 pm 10pm. We had three babies born last night! I was just a observer however I was present for all three births and we had such a wonderful time. It was dead from 2 until about 5:30 and then it was baby after baby until 10. The first baby was born in about half and hour she pushed for 7 minutes, she had a little girl. Big sister was there and was so fun to watch her look and play with the new baby. The secant baby was very fast as well we took her from the car strait to the bed. She had the baby in about 5 minutes! It was a boy and he weighed under 5lbs. The last baby that we saw was a little longer but all went well. It was also a boy! All babies where healthy and all the mommy's did well. I am sorry that I do not have any pictures my camera battery was dead. I am on swing shift again today and my camera is charged up so maybe if we have more babies tonight I will be able to get some pictures.

We are all safe and sound

Well we made it! We are all safe and slept well last night. We had a little problem at the air port in Manilla, our bags where over weight! I had to pay 90$ but we got through and made just fine.

Here are some pictures of our house

The mess of unpacking!

On our way

We have started on the first leg of our journey. We are all very excited to be starting on this trip! I am a little home sick at the moment but I am sure that it will go away when we get to Davao and start working. Right now we are in hurry up and wait. We have most of our group here but will be meeting up with two of them in L.A. It is raining in Seattle but that is no surprise, we can not wait to get into some warmer weather.

Hopefully I will have more to share in L.A
