Today the team had breakfast at the Compass with Joe who is the owner.
We then went to his bakery which is called the "In n Out." He also has a shop and rents space to several others.
We then embarked on a 7 hour bus journey that would best be described as:
Jake: Scenic and the fastest 7 hour bus ride of my life.
Steve: Breathtaking. Spectacular.
Max: Mostly untouched land and completely unimaginable.
Scott: One of those - "You had to be there moments" in life.
We followed the Yangtze River and then connected up with the Mekong River and arrived in a VERY small village that we are not sure of the name.
Jake made friends immediately with some kids using the orange balls from Wartburg.
Rooms were $9.63 each so we splurged and got two. Dinner for 9 was $30.60 - and it did include three warm beers.
Tomorrow we head to an even smaller village where SCF and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church embarked on a significant project.
We are anxious to meet these friends who are Lisu.
We have found the world to be shrinking ever more as we stay connected through the iPhone5.
