Picture Evening

Linda and Kobi at the fund raiser.
This afternoon and evening we spent at a fund raiser for the special needs students of Melaque and Barra.  It was quite the event and down here they do it right. Music, prizes, food, drinks and special performances by the children, it was a special afternoon. All the funds go to support these students. The government pays for the teachers pay and electricity only! Everything else has to be payed by the parents, who can not afford to pay, or by fund raising events like this.  They told us that they think the government will not be paying for the electricity next year so there will be a greater need for support.

After the event wound down a bit we walked over to the beach and watched the sun set. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Dances by the students were the highlight.

Gotta have a couple sunsets!
