Ah, the great outdoors. So far I haven’t shown you what walking about the village looks like from the pedestrian’s perspective, so I figure now is high time to do so. If you walk out of my front door, lock the door behind you, stroll down the sidewalk and turn left when you reach the street, here’s the spittin’ image of what you’ll see:
Not bad, huh? The roads are all dirt here, yes. And when it rains all night (like it did last night), the roads are all mud here. But today was a clear day – a sunny day – and by noon all the roads were back to hard-packed dirt.
If you take a stroll up the hill (the whole village, from the moment you enter it, slants upward) during the gloaming, you’ll come to sights such as this:
Which is good enough reason (I think) to take a stroll up the hill, well, every evening.
Tomorrow is our first day of school – so do be in prayer as my students and I embark on a year’s worth of work together.
