Out and about in the tuk-tuk. Pete quickly learned to keep his elbow tucked in!
Having Pete Denholm and Kerry Hartley in town for three days was most excellent! They are our first home-based visitors, and most worthy of the title!
It took Kerry very little time to establish that many of the stall owners at our local 'shopping centre' (the Russian Market) were of Chinese descent. He was quickly conversing with the locals like an old-timer - pretty sickening really for me to watch, having been here nearly six months and still only being capable of stuttering along!
We got around a bunch of places and people - Big Frank at Hagar, Bophal at the Centre of Peace orphanage, Grahame and Sandra at another orphanage (blog article to come on this), duck into church, plus a whole lot of places around town. Pete was a real surprise; happy as a duck in mud for this his first trip out to Asia. Even his tummy turns after breakfast at the market did not discourage him.

River of Life Church in Waitara will be sending out a team next year - so that has made Pete's time here even more valuable. As for Kerry, he shall certainly return!
