Greetings from a 30-mile-long strip of land in the north pacific,Brrrsky, I am cold. We got caught in the rain on the way to NTA (national telecommunications authority) and so we stopped at the "kiribati family's" house to dry off. The rain started coming down in buckets so we changed into guam dresses and helped keep the water out of their house. I guess it's more like an entry way to their house..it's hard to explain. They only have the nice, clean part of the roof connected to the pontoon to get water, but another part of the drain spout was open so we put a bucket under to collect the water, and dumped it about every 10 seconds after it got full. We also swept the water away and put sand to keep the water from coming in. And then we did laundry in the rain, so we were soaking wet. It was so fun to play in the rain. Then we ate lunch and when the rain stopped we walked over to NTA in rita. NTA is supposed to open at but the workers hadn't yet arrived at so we decided to just come to the NTA in Delap. It's more expensive (I don't know why they would have different rates) but at least we have a time to email today. We're not allowed to email at CMI (College of the Marshall Islands) anymore because the elders were being loud and obnoxious in the library. Imagine that.
Supposedly a few of the elders went out to Laura this morning to try to run from Laura to Rita, or one end of the island to the other. It's about 30 miles long, so I think they're crazy. I kind of want to get a few people together and bike it one p day. I think that sounds a bit more reasonable that running 30 miles.
