We continue to get settled. We are starting a garden and my back is killing me from turning up the soil. Robi has been planting seedlings small containers and storing them in the cabinets. Yesterday, in our second day with electricity (YAY!), I was working in the garden and talking with a student who wants help studying for his matriculation exams, when the three pigs opened the gate and ran out into the yard. It was time to chase them down and get them into the pen. One problem, they are huge, at least my size, if not bigger. So we (Me, Samuel, Romeo, and Robi) chased them around for about 30 minutes and finally got them back. I must say that it was an experience that I did not expect. But fun was had by all. Always a new experience in South Africa.
