Voting Day

All ready to go!! (Sorry about the washed out look)
Here in Bolivia, yet another strange custom is "voting days". Voting Days are always on Sundays and it is like a Pedestrian Day, in that driving is only allowed with a permit. In addition to the no driving rule, there is also the rule that you cannot have meetings larger than two people... We break that rule every time!! In other words no church services are held those days either. Last Sunday was a voting day. This time we took advantage of the day by walking about two and a half kilometers down to visit our friends the Clarks, who live on the Carachipampa School campus.
Out for a stroll!
The Clarks had come over for dinner the night before and left us their stroller to use for the walk! That was a huge blessing and pushing the stroller was "the thing" to do!!

Another stroller combo!
At the school with the Clarks the kids had a great time on the playground!

Before it was time to walk back we got together for a group picture. It was quite hot when we set out of the return trip, so we were super happy to see Tio David and Tia Rosa coming down the road in the orphanage's red truffi. They had gotten a permit for the day, so they could check on the homes. They gave us a lift to our street and we didn't even have to walk more than half a kilometer... I call that good timing!
