I don’t have time for a full post today, but I thought I’d just share a few photos. After traveling a lot this fall (for work stuff and vacation in August), I’ve mostly just been filling my days back in village with my kids. Here are a few of my favorites.
Oh, and one more thing. MY VILLAGE IS GETTING ELECTRICITY!!!!! Yup, right as I’m getting ready to pack up my stuff (I leave in almost a month! Crazy…) the poles and electrical wires are going up with a speed and efficiency I haven’t seen in my village in two years. I’m trying not to think about how I could have had a FAN blowing on my for the past two years… and instead think about how exciting this is for my village. “Bugma watame!” they say as they watch the lines going up, which literally means “fire is coming,” (there’s no word for electricity in Moore). Of course, each household will have to pay to actually get it connected to their house, so it’ll be a good long while before it’s hooked up and widespread. But, still exciting news. Here’s a few photos I took to capture the new and modern landscape of my village.
Thanks for reading! I’ll have more next time.
