We loaded up. Our driver, intent on studying google maps, did not want to be part of our launching photo. :) But we love our driver who gets us everywhere we need to be!
The drive is beautiful! As soon as you get out of the city, the land is just covered with trees. Consequently, we see logging trucks, logging towns, and log houses. These little villages, tucked away by themselves, never cease to pull on my heart.
They are always clustered together with a local mosque.
After our turnoff from the big highway, we passed a little old man with his thumb stuck out. I just had that feeling, "Stop for him." I mentioned it to CC, who had the same thought. We backed up on our highway. Yes, that's done here. CC got out to talk to him and find out where he needed to go. It was right on our way.
