My Host Sister

Here's a pic of my host sister Joana. When I ask her, 'O que voce faz hoje (what are you doing today?),' she usually responds, 'vou escola e brincari (i am going to school and i will play).' She laughs almost constantly and watches cartoons in the morning before school. Like most Mozambicans, she only has school for 4 hours a day, because they phase the school day to accommodate everyone.

It was surprisingly difficult to get her to smile for the photo. Smiling for photos isn't very common here. I have no idea why.

Your brother,
