Today was Tony and Pisie’s last day to get some video that they were really looking for. We went to Phoebe’s house and they got footage of a girl [Desire] that we’ve been following for the last year. They also got some of Phoebe and some of the tailors. We spent the whole day there. I worked with Phoebe organizing for the next week and working out some figures about supplies that are needed. Meanwhile Pisie and Tony filmed various things, I read my book and felt a little like I was on vacation.
At one point during my outside reading time I stood up and noticed two little boys coming down the pathway past Phoebe’s house taking turns pushing each other in a wheel barrow. When they passed the house I asked if I could take pictures of them. They were thrilled to see themselves on my phone and giggled with delight.
We came back to our hotel for the last night together, had a nice dinner and discussed the week. I will miss this part of my journey. Pisie and Tony are thoughtful, introspective people who make me think about how to do my best for this project. I have learned a lot and am so thankful that they have been here with me.
