This is what happens when I leave myself logged in on the lome workstation computers. Some girl who knows me from Savanes comes and HACKS.

I remember one morning a few years back I was making breakfast for myself. So i’m frying the bacon when I hear a knock on my door. I open it to see one of those door to door solicitors from the Nation of Islam. He looked me dead in the eye and said, “I smell swine my brother.”

asked someone to bring me things back from the states, including good earphones. Got them today and one side was broken  already. I give up… Leave me to eat my gummy bears in silence. 

Yeah! For Productive Days!

Saw and talked extensively about latrines, learned about some drama going on in my community and AND went to Club Espoir and made a few introductions.. I feel pretty good about that because apparently none of the volunteers in my region ever work with these kids and they were pretty cool. Especially the girls. I loved how they weren’t  afraid to speak up in a room full of boys which is usually the case .  Also think I’ve made a new  work partner … but he may have some issues with boundaries… 

THANKSGIVING

I am so ready for my trip to the Savanes Region of Togo. It’ll be a two day trip up   with a break to lay next to the pool in Kara. Then on to  being reunited with friends, turkey, birthdays and I don’t know what else. All I know is I am surprisingly looking forward to my first Thanksgiving and birthday in Togo.

Some day the winter of life will pass before us, then we’ll remember the place that proudly bore us! Happy Founder’s Day, Roanoke!

Deeeep in our hearts….
