All of these kids were amazing - they're ability to communicate and play with each other, often without a common language was amazing. They were also very forgiving of our minimal German. It turns out my German is about on par with 8 year old German-Moroccan girls who speak only Arabic at home. These two girls had me wrapped around their fingers. They wanted to see the elephants, we went straight to the elephants. Next up were the kangaroos. They begged for ice cream, we broke down and bought them ice cream (I didn't cave first). I think the kids had fun, but I KNOW that I had a blast. I need to make more of an effort to spend time with local kids at each post.
