No Walmart's over here! By Greg Davis
It was another stunning day in Shalai. Our team is all over teaching english! We decided as a team to get new school uniforms, pants, shirts, shoes and socks. In one of the schools we are going to put some benches so the kids don't have to sit in the dirt and snow. The village is small and just right out side of our compound. There is not a lot of selection in the market so we are going to have to get to Pontasahib. No Walmart over here! I dread the drive! It has been interesting to figure out the sizes of all of the clothing and shoes for the the kids but I think we have it! Some of the things we will get locally and I sent a driver to down the road to Pontasahib for some Rupees, way better than making the drive myself! Things are pretty inexpensive over here. Shoes are about two dollars. We can probably get the entire uniforms for five dollars. We think we can get the benches at a government supply store.
