Free time!

Oh yes, we did have some free time when we were in the Ondini Circuit.  Most of us had a journal to keep up with so we could remember the details of this trip.  Some of the boys spent time with the local  people their age, either talking, playing soccer, or just hanging out.  There was also the evening devotion and talk session that we needed for mental health.


Memories in the journals were not always words, they could be visual.  A bit of music at the same time helped to make us feel at home.

An evening card game was possible, usually in our room since we had the most floor space or outside if the weather was warm enough.  Some times these would evolve into sessions of advice for our college bound young men, or just a series of jokes and laughter.

Oscar, a half-grown cat, would show up looking for some attention, food or just a lap to nap on.

Beer or wine could be a part of the evening.  But as the evening progressed the call of the internet would draw everyone off to make contact with home.

For some reason the internet was only available starting about 9:30 in the evening and it only lasted for a few hours.  Since the entry to our room had both a charging station and the internet hub, that entry would become quite crowded.

Soon it was lights out.  Everyone was off to their room.  There was always something to see and do the next day and we needed some sleep.
