Today I received the best gift ever from a learner. Unlike the mugs, candles or boxes of chocolate that teachers back home get in appreciation, I get food – fruit from fruit trees, chicken, fish. Today, it was a hunk of pork! Gabriel’s family slaughtered a pig over lunch today and so he brought me a big piece of fresh pork. It’s cooking in the oven now and it smells amazing! Ahhh, rural life.
