Up the Tall Mountain

By Amira Elizabeth Baayd


I thought since Norah got to tell her story I should let Amira do the same. The day after Thanksgiving we hiked to the top of Diamond Head- an inactive volcano. The hike was less than a mile, but quite steep. Amira decided to hike almost of all it herself. She did a great job and was so proud of herself when she reached the top. Several Japanese tourists applauded her effort, adding to the drama of the moment. Here are a few pictures and Amira's explanation of them.

" I went up the- what's that? The mountain. Playing and playing with my friends."












"I got excercise and I was so tired. Scary. I'm nice and happy."

*Amira quickly tired of explaining the pictures so I'll just post a few more.

My happy girls:
At the top


Mohamed got some great shots of Amira once we finished the hike

I can't believe how big Amira is! Wow. And your views are breathtaking. How long will you be there? A dream of mine is to visit...

Winnie- we miss you, too. Little Evie (sp?, sorry) is SO cute.

Jana- we are here for 1.5 more years. Come, come, come! Sometime when Jason is stuck studying.
