Days 24-26 in Africa

Winding down...Monday was spent nursing indigestion (wouldn't really be a true African experience without it), and preparing for the dinner we were hosting chez nous. I read somewhere that an estimated 1 billion people in the world live without clean, sanitary, water--something needs to be done about that says I (and my bowels).

The dinner was wonderful! Both Aminatas came: Aminata Sow, Aminata Sow Fall, Charles and Angelique Becker, and Ibrahima and Mariam Thiaw.

Tuesday was hades-hot. We made more Jewelry purchases for the exhibition, and then cooled off in the roof-top pool of our hotel--a discovery we made this last week of our stay.

Today we met with Papa N'Diay (head of IFAN university) and Syndalie Wade (the president of Senegal's daughter) discuss the exhibition. We met with Marcia Bernicat (American Ambassador) as well to discuss US support of the project.

This week is hurrying by at a time when I desperately want the clock to stop. There's simply so much to do, and far to little time left to accomplish everything!
