Jaynie's visa arrived last week. She's eagerly looking forward to returning to the central Asian country in which she served two American families as a home school teacher from August to December. With nearly her first step on the dry, dusty soil of that nation, Jaynie fell in love with the people of the area. She was especially enchanted with the local children, and enjoyed spontaneous opportunities to teach them English and drawing. Some of these children's families are so impoverished they live in the city's dumps.
Here are some photos as she transitioned in August to the country in central Asia in the company of her dad and brother, John. This hotel would be the last bit of anything approaching luxury and even comfort they would see.
