Tea Time

Although December is one of the drier months in Rwanda, we frequently get short rainstorms during the day. This morning we had a few showers that kept business pretty slow.

 On these chilly rainy mornings, the women often like to enjoy a cup of tea, icyayi, to keep themselves warm. The women at the shop like to use a lot of sugar in their tea. The women also use this tea time to correct my Kinyarwanda, the national language in Rwanda, and teach me some new words as I help them with their English.

Julienne likes to take photos with my camera.

Luckily the rain doesn’t last too long and a little later in the day the skies have cleared up and the shop is busy again!
