1. Senegal Sharing Thanksgiving

    Five PCVs, one visiting cousin and two Norweigan students cooked our Thanksgiving Meal 2008 at a small hotel on the Langue de Barbarie in Senegal.  One of the Volunteers, Sara Hollerich, bought the turkey and kept it in outhouse.  Her host-father killed it for her, then she and another PCV prepared it... We also baked pumpkin pies, made stuffing and mashed potatos in the little outdoor kitchen with a sand floor of the hotel.  This photo was taken in the bar of the hotel. 

  2. Senegal The Flat Tire

    On a trip down to the islands in the Mangroves of Senegal's Sine-Saloum Delta, our car got a flat tire... the converted station wagon veared off the road when it blew, making us shriek.  Thankfully we all got to our destination safely!  There were 7 PCVs on the trip.
