Snapshot: Knives and goats

“There was no rice sorting today.  Instead, I was handed a small black bag and 4 knives.  It didn’t take me long to realize that there were goat parts in there, but I was thankful it was parts and not 4 knives and a whole goat 🙂  I sat with the Headmaster of the Ereri Primary and he taught me how to butcher it.  We spent at least an hour sitting on the ground while he asked all kinds of questions about the U.S. and how our meat is slaughtered and packaged for us.  Quite an interesting conversation and one that I cherish.”
