After the cook stove construction, we had time to hang out with the kids.

  5. The Gambia Dead Toubab Clothes

    Ever wonder what happens to all those clothes you donate to the poor people of Africa?  This is it.  They are sold in the market.  The people want "Western" clothes, and they are free/cheap to the seller, so they are less expensive than going to buy cloth and taking that to the tailor.  The locals call them "dead toubab clothes", because they can't imagine people getting rid of nice clothes like this unless the owner had died.

  6. The Gambia At the pump

    My village was considered "wealty".  We had a several solar pumps.  They went on once a day for a few hours, and you would fill up as much as you could.  This one my compund shared with 2 others, so we got it every third day.

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

  8. The Gambia This is lunch?
