So last night we had a bit of an adventure. Everything was going normally and then we had a bit of a surprise as we were getting ready for bed. Sharissa was taking a shower and I was writing a letter to a friend. Suddenly, she comes running into the room and cowers behind the corner of the door peeping out into the hallway. She is freaking out because she saw something in the bathroom. After I get her to form complete sentences I figure out that she had run into this little guy:
Yep - That is a scorpion my friends. He was only about a half inch or an inch long. Our host mom dispatched him easily and without much ceremony but Sharissa is still traumatized. Hopefully she isn't scarred for life.
A girl with big dreams, crazy ideas, and plans to make it all happen.
