Hello! This is us on the plane to Dakar. We look happy, but what ended up happening was over 24 hours with no sleep and waiting 8 hours in the Dakar airport. International travel is never easy.
Since we have gotten to The Gambia we have learned greetings in Wolof (a common local language) and attended lectures on Gambian culture. Also, I touched a crocodile!!! It was at the crocodile pool in Kachicalli, where we had our naming ceremony. My Gambian name by the way is Isatou Conteh.
Its been hard to sit down in front of a computer long enough to blog all the things I am experiencing. Hopefully once classes start, I will be able to write much more. Until them... Jaama (peace)
