Day two of the census. This time with no rain.

Making our way to the first house of the day
Not sure who is helping who
**NOTE about the census: There were several things that really stood out today when taking the census. For example, at most places the whole family was not at the house. Most of the time at least one person was out in the fields working. Some of the children were at school and others just weren’t there. I also saw a lot of young moms and moms who had given birth at a young age. Something else that was interesting, and I personally think a little weird, were the old men who have young wives. In total, we visited 55 families on this day.
