March 24, 2018 (SSB) — When I was young ,we always sat around the campfire at evening hours to warm up before we head to the bed! Campfire was not just for a physical warm up only but was a very important time where elders pass down life stories to their children and grandchildren. These stories were and meant a lot to kids like myself because most of them carry a lot of  educational and principles in real life. One of the stories that I kept in my mind up to date was about an artistic woman named Achol.

Achol was a very hard working young lady and has a handy thumps in building huts! As many young women of her time, she built a very beautiful hut and her house was at the roadside! Her hut was beautiful, eye catching and so it was admired by many travelers.

To admiration of many passers by,lots of people would stop by and compliment her for building such a magnificent  hut!
