Language class was at our instructor's place. (We take turns having it at either Sarah's, mine, or Franck's houses.) Yesterday afternoon, when Sarah and I left Franck's, we saw a chicken standing in the corner of the garage with its feet tied together. Franck said it was going to be dinner. This morning when we arrived for class, the chicken was still alive. Franck was too busy last night to prepare it. So, during class today, the other PC instructor who lives with Franck decided to "prepare" the chicken for lunch. Franck asked Sarah and I if we wanted to watch, we said no. We have to watch it get done in a few weeks anyway-for a cultural lesson. I personally don't want to see animals get killed if I don't have to.

There are animals all over the place here. They just wander around scavaging for food. Goats, chickens, roosters, pigs, sheep, dogs, and lizards...the goats, chickens, pigs, and sheep are tagged or dyed by the owners. The will be on some families dinner plate some day.

We had bike training in the afternoon. I learned how to take my tires off and fix them if they are flat. Very informative, and probably will be useful information since the roads here are horrid. Next bike training session, we get to learn how to fix our breaks and gears.
