Mung beans! Thanks to cousin Marcus, I am going to see if I can sprout them . . the progress pics will come soon! So I just washed them thoroughly, and then soaked them for 12 hours in a glass jar, and then I’ve been twice daily rinsing them.

A different kind of tub here, but just as much fun.

When we first came back, we couldn’t find our stored bags. I did think that we had stored them particularly thoroughly this time, but where now ?? As Jacob looked for our bags, he found something we had previously thought was stolen or mysteriously lost. Years ago, Jacob made a travel tabla set. Really incredibly ingenious. They work musically too. So it was a great disappointment when we couldn’t find them — and now, here they are!
