The next time I think about complaining

I am home in Kansas City (made it back safely!) with a sinus infection today but I'm not complaining.  I think all of us on this trip will think twice about complaining for a while.  It's a little hard to see in the top picture but on the other side of this group of students and faculty, there is a "washateria" where the local women gather to hand-wash their clothes.  They scrub and scrub and pound and wring until their clothes are clean...without benefit of washing machine and dryer.  The gentleman in the other picture was like many we saw.  He was carrying a heavy load to his worksite and doing so barefoot.  I'm looking forward to being back at work tomorrow!
