Fromage friend Maniang at home in the bush
...the fourth time round but lots of firsts!

especially traveling with 2 friends, african virgins, AND vegetarians....yes!, i get to kiss one of said least when we're out of muslim public view. 😊

just a little foto gallery for now, more stories as they unfold and as i find better internet cafes! ... but let's say for now, in classic Kathryn style, i have discovered more connections between me and people here and there...bumping into folks in every way possible. groovy.

oh, and chasing goats (and hunting peanut butter) and dreaming of camels and learning more wolof and some peulaar and getting ready to go off to a wedding in the bush. not my wedding, though.

oh, and working a bit. thank you, technology.
