So today was quite a day! We had a brush fire break out and sweep across the huge fields we have. And there is no such thing as a fire department in these parts so everyone sort of knows how to fight fires on their own. All the staff and children knew what to do, and so the American learned a lot! Take a branch and hit the fire! Who knew that would be the way to do it! It rushed up to the back window of my house, and I had my important things in my hands ready to get out! After about 3 hours of running water buckets here and there, swinging branches, and lots of help and strategy the fire burned itself out. But our nice field is a bit black now. But nothing burned and no one was hurt. Never a dull moment.
