We went to orphanages today to practice implementing nonformal education and to basically play with the kids. The place I went to was more on the order of a boarding school though. It's actually the school my cousins go to and where we go to church. Some of the girls recognized me from church and this definitely answered my question as to why there are always so many kids in church! Many times my mom will year a capulana skirt and wrap her head with one as well and will look exactly like the stereotypical African woman. Then other times she will put on her skinny jeans, fashionable sandals, denim jacket, framed glasses, and matching headband and earrings and she could be any young woman in urban America.
