We had the privilege of hosting Joey and several of his friends from Dakar Academy over Easter weekend. I loved watching them make attaya – the friendship tea traditionally served in three rounds in Senegal. Good memories, good tea, and good friends. A great combination.
We traveled from Dakar to Kaffrine for a two-day visit. One of the highlights of our trip was time out in one of the villages where our team members are working, and here are a few of my favorite photos from that visit. Here’s the link to my facebook album as well.
On the road from Dakar to Kaffrine, we enjoyed many sights outside of our normal daily lives!
This is a very unique mosque.
They are harvesting salt from the river delta.
Big waves plus people we enjoy equals a relaxing afternoon!
A happy and sad night! We are so thankful for the accomplishment of the seniors, but at this ending of the school year, many people will be leaving Senegal and traveling to their home countries. So many that we love– leave tonight, tomorrow and in the next few days… so our celebration is tinged with sadness!
When we returned to the car at the end of the evening, we found this card for “Aunt Mary”, with the beautiful bouquet– it was an anonymous thank-you note for the time and love I’ve shared with the students this year… what a surprise and what a treat!
