Luke and I purchased a motorcycle last week and have already had fun with the freedom of wheels. :) All three couples went on a ride to a river a number of kilometers away from the CFM campus. At least, that was the original plan. We stopped to visit a churchplanter along the way, forged some knee deep temporary streams covering the road, and eventually reached a section of road that proved to be impassible to our brave bikes. The pictures tell the story...

The church planter's children plus friends. Sweet kids. :)

The road

Knee deep water turned to chest deep water... So we took a raft ride the rest of the way.

The bamboo raft liked to float a couple of inches under the surface of the water. I can't blame it for all the weight it was carrying.

The barge owners (note the noble craft in the background) with their grateful cargo. We payed them more than they expected. We got a great price. Goodwill all around.

Wow! This is AWESOME!!!!! Reminds me of similar experiences I had working in South America jungles. Only I ended up needing to ride in a dugout canoe that barely stayed above the water. And when it rained, we just used the banana leaves as umbrellas. Fun fun!!! Enjoying catching up on your exciting adventures!!!!
