Thank Goodness for Rummi-kub and Liverpool Rummy

By Jack and Barbara Clarke, CCF Donors and Rick Falco, President and Creative Director of Vision Project

Today was a great success! We have a projector that works and Jack was able to download a trial CS3 on the computer to streamline our downloading and organizing (and now he has a new program to learn!)

While in Roseau we hit two grocery stores, the street vegetable market and came home on the bus loaded down. The bus was completely PACKED. We had a little girl on her way home from school squeezed in between us and three in front of us.

They were giggling and chattering the whole way home to Grand Bay (about a 30 minute winding ride over a mountain pass). I am amazed at all the little children taking the "city" bus into town and home for school. This would not happen in the States!

We use the computer and projector in class and the kids were able to see each other's work and were encouraged to critique one another. They were a little shy at first, but got more comfortable as the day went on.

Each day is packed and busy, but if we weren’t so busy, we’d have nothing to do at all. Thank goodness for Rummi-kub and Liverpool Rummy! I brought two books, but am already on my second so I’ll have to savor it.

Juliette, our landlady, has given us some videos to watch on the computer but the choices are limited. The computer also claims the DVD’s are from a different region and we are fighting with it to view them.
