Today, we went to the University of Dodoma. We did a music workshop with the students. Carol taught them how to read music. It was really fun!
I also brought my accordion and played it for them...
We brought cookies and they were quite a hit
There was a school arts festival going on, so we went to that too. There was dancing, music and art.
The paintings were selling for around 100,000 shillings, or 60 dollars. 

This is a paper mache giraffe. I wanted to take it home in my suitcase.

Next, we saw a play. I had no idea what was going on because they spoke in Swahili, but it went along the lines of the women's rights movement I think.

When we came back home, the little neighbor boys were mesmerized by my accordion.


Another thing...

I washed my clothes by hand for the first time in my life! Here is an action shot:
Now those are some nicely cleaned clothes.
