Amy, Mukuvala dresi?

"Amy, you're wearing a dress?"

Look at the first picture. On the right is President Bingu. In the back with the brown dress (that I sowed out of a sheet last week) is ME! The President promised us he would dance so I took my opportunity and boogied close to him. When I was close enough I shook his hand. Sneak-attach presidential greeting! Anyway, the luncheon was wonderful and the entire affair was a lot of fun. There was a band so of course there was dancing (which is pretty much what happens whenever peace corps -Malawi gets together). It was a really fun trip and I'll update more when I have more than 3 minutes left on my internet. So excited!

  2. I like that the Chichewa for "dress" is "dresi". That's kind of cool and i might start saying it.

  3. AMY - Are you sure that dress is long enough? You don't want to create an international incident! You are very clever to SEW your dress, it reminds me of Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music, making outfits out of the curtains. We are thinking of you more than you know! Virginia

  4. Amy - I agree w/Auntie Gin - you are ever so clever just like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music - Did you sew it by hand as well? Hugs, Janice the happy domestic wanderer! (at least this year!). Thanks for the letter.
