First wasfamili visit

During orientation we were assigned a "wasfamili", (watch family), from a village close to Nobnob, that would help teach us Tok Pisin and learn more about their culture. The first night we met them, they came to Nobnob, and ate dinner with us. The first visit was a little awkward as Doug and I knew very little Tok Pisen at this point., but they were very gracious to help and correct us. They had mostly grown children, but they brought their youngest boy (14) with them.
