    AMAZING day with Alex and his family!

    Alex and his family were so friendly and welcoming. We walked through town to pick up fresh fish, vegetables and spices. Once back at the house, everyone pitched in to prepare the meal. We were chopping, grinding, stirring and frying. And we got to hold an adorable baby! Then we ate the very delicious (but very spicy!) food. Then Alex's family surprised us with music and dancing! They were so warm and hospitable...highly recommend!
