This is typical Maria (winter) weather in Tabola...very cold and sunny. The tjale (small waist blanket) I am wearing was a gift from Sekonyelo's parents. You can see that although I am freezing (notice the wrists), I am also sunburned!!! I wear sunblock daily, but the sun is so strong.
A new pre-school has just opened in my village and they have NOTHING. The school is called Mopeli pre-school; it's named after a former chief in our village (the one who donated the land for Mopeli Primary School).. The children's ages range from 2 years to 4 1/2 years. If you have appropriate gently used toys, puzzles, etc. which you'd like to pass on, these kids would really love to have them. My address is: Rusty de Lucia, P.C.V. P.O. Box 31 Peka 340, Leribe Lesotho (southern Africa) Anything you might be able to part with will be so appreciated. Thanks, Rusty
