1. The Gambia Fetching water

    My site mate and I went to get some water so we could bathe after a bike ride.

  2. The Gambia This is lunch?

    My patents came to visit after my first year, and did not adjust to the food very well.  Here, I am trying to explain how to eat the cous.  She was not impressed.

  3. Dominican Republic Politics, Dominicanized

  9. Madagascar Roberta

    Roberta is the granddaughter of a very good friend of mine!  They became my family away from home.
