Corn Anybody?

We are deep into language study. What exactly does that mean? Well, sometimes it's sitting in the office listening to our new recordings. But, most of the time, it's being out in the village, with the people, making friends and seeing new and amazing things - like this corn grinder. In an area where rice can't be grown, corn works just fine. The corn is grown, dried, hulled, then ground in this stone grinder. The ground pieces are then cooked, well, like rice! It can also be made into corn COFFEE! Such creative people, such a creative language!
