Boulsa Skype. Valentine's Day brought good fortune today as we went to Boulsa where hoped for better internet key access allowed us to make a successful audio and video connection on Skype with Marcy Decraene at Brookside. We did so from Bila's house (my namtenga house mother) where we all watched in marvel at that and the Brookside and Cranbrook Weaving studio videos. The connections are staggering. Hopefully we will be able to achieve. similar success in namtenga--all depends on internet key access.....
A farewell dinner at christophe's with an amazing brotherhood of leaders from Dargo nicknames- Prefet Bill (Clinton), Comptable "Warren" Christopher, Mayor "Al" Gore, Education Inspector Socrates, Commissar "Holmes", General Secretaire Michel (2), and Noelie "Yuurbaoda". What a team and what a special collection of human spirits and courage! Words cannot do this assemblage justice.
Tuesday morning we will be off to Namtenga, picking up pcv kathryn siuniak in boulsa.
Stay tuned for more updates!
