Vaccine Day atschool- All students that were 13 years old had to get a shot. They stopped class and the two nurses took over. All the students were running around, crying, begging, hoping not to have to get it. Of course, that way my cue to bring out the camera and try to get them to smile a bit.
Some of the bigger boys in class. Uniforms are worn in school, unless the student doesn't have enough money to buy it.
Kinda looks like they have 5 arms. HAHAHA
These little guys were crackin' me up.
This little man was a bit too young to get the shot. But the nurse still gave him a card to be stamped so he could save it for next year.

You first have to use this little device to slice the plantains and then you rub them with some salt. Next step is to slip them into some oil, cook, and then blotting them on a paper towel. Not great for you, but GREAT to eat!!
