We took some footballs, some soccer balls, and a jump rope into the tent city. The kids rushed up to the tap-taps the mintue we entered. A lot of them just like to hang out and play with them. I think most of use were expecting the poverty to be a bit more overwhelming. There were a few kids with no pants and a few other with no shoes, but the vast majority of people seemed to be adequtely dressed and sufficiently fed. Saw some of the adults playing dominoes for candy. The only issue was getting the kids out and off of the tap-taps when it was time to leave.
Returning to the compound for dinner now.
