Charlini was here today getting over malaria. Everyone here gets it five to six times a year. It can kill Charlini for at least two more years, so we have to be careful. She was feeling better this afternoon. I was sitting in a chair in my living room reading a book I just got in the mail (thanks Penny) and Charlini got a book, climbed up into the chair next to me and began to sing. Her song was that Babu (me) and Charlini (her) were both in our chairs reading books. She sang it over and over again. And then, when she left, she surprised me by saying to Karen, "I love you" in English. I'd never heard her say that before. Wow.
