Nothing rhymes with "purple" but it's my sister's favorite color. -- Askofu Wiggins
Karen, John, and Shaban traveled to Karikakari today, about 45 miles west of us out in the bush where the St. Penny's Academy is located in the Methodist Church. Karen designed the uniforms in a traditional Tanzanian style. They are purple because of the quote above. St. Penny's is named after my sister, who is, in my mind, a saint. Karen had a local woman make the uniforms after Karen selected the cloth. Today, she took the hats for the boys out to them. She was up late last night making them. I think she's a saint, too.
