Yohani with his aunt, Heliane, and cousin, Vana. Today is Heliane's 23rd birthday. She currently lives in Beira where she is studying accounting at a university there and she is back in Nampula just for Christmas break.
Yohani playing with his aunts, Estalinda and Dimisa, and cousin, Vana.
Everyone loves it when Yohani gets riled up.
Victor BBQing, Alberto, Zaqueio, and Jonas making rice (and Jonas really knows how to make good rice).
Heliane, Vana, Estalinda, and Alfenia watching Victor's dad on the swing.
Vana, Victor's dad, Yohani, Heliane, Dimisa, Estefano, Victor's mom, Erica, Miqueias, and Estalinda.
Everyone relaxing on the hill, enjoying the scenery.
Vana with her mom, Estalinda.
Yohani and his grandpa. I think Yohani looks exactly like Victor's dad and I always call them "Gemios" ("Twins" in Portuguese). (I'm sorry I could not get them to make the same expression at the same time so you could all see how much they really look like gemios.)
Yohani with his grandparents and cousin, Vana.
Victor's brother Charles with his wife Estalinda and daughter Vana. (Estalinda is also the daughter of Mama Maria, the orphanage cook.)
Me, Heliane, Yohani, and Dimisa.
Two peas in a pod - cousins, Jonas and Estefano, together on their little swing. Miqueias (another one of Victor's brothers) is watching (and it's Miqueias's birthday today (he and Heliane are twins) and he has malaria).
