Slums and balut

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
It's 11:15pm and I'm pretty awake - we had a nap this afternoon which had to have been at least 2 hours long.

This morning we went to a slum about 5 minutes walk from where we are staying. This is one of Kit's ministries and we got to sing, play games and teach the local children while Kit did a bible study with their parents. This was my first chance to get some portrait shots and I'm pretty happy with them.

I've decided not to post all my shots online as I go through this outreach. A picture may well paint a thousand words but without a proper story behind some of the photos they just seem to have much less impact, or if they do impact they leave you asking questions, which I cant answer directly if the photo is up on flickr. I also want to make sure that the photos aren't interpreted in a way I didn't mean when I took them.

Tonight we had our Fear Factor challenge - balut! This is a 16 day old chicken (though ours was duck, which also counts) that has been cooked in the shell. It's considered a delicacy to open the shell, drink the juice, eat the partly developed bird, yolk and whatever the crunchy part is. I didn't eat the crunchy part but I did eat the bird and yolk.
