Chapter Two: Laundry and the Beach

   It has been a while since my last post. So sorry about that! 
We have been very busy and every time I say I am going to do it today I run out of time before bedtime. 
   Here are some more pictures today. The first one is our laundry! We hang it out to dry on our veranda. That has taken some getting used to. I have never had to do that before. 

This second one is Sarah going to put her sheets back on her bed after they finished drying. 

         Living at the coast it is not surprising that we are near a lighthouse. I do not know what the name of it is. It is very pretty though.

Earlier this week we walked on the beach a few times. We saw a wrecked ship at one spot down the coast. I don't know how old it is. It fascinating to watch the waves as they crash against it!

Enjoy the pictures! I will try and get some more up here soon!

Chapter One: Beira and Banana Bread

  The days are busy as we continue to set up our household. Our flat in Beira, Mozambique is feeling like home. The city sometimes reminds me of Rocky Mount, NC. Some of the streets make me feel like I am riding through the neighborhood my dad grew up in. The buildings are beautiful. The Portuguese designs are amazing.
   Yesterday we finally got appliances for our kitchen! We went out today to look for living room furniture. We hope to attain seating for seven very soon. 
   Earlier this evening I helped my mom make homemade banana bread. It smelled so good as it baked in our mini oven on the counter. Here are a few photos that my sister Sarah took while we were putting the batter together :) 

       We hope to do a lot more baking and cooking very soon. To those back in Nashville, I am ready to get some cinnamon buns ready to serve!
