Another Senegalese holiday, another bowl of macaroni, potatoes, and bread with a sheep on top.  Tabaski is a large Muslim holiday celebrating the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son for God wherein he ends up being able to sacrifice a sheep instead, hence the sheep present in all Muslim Tabaski meals.  To me, it felt like just another Senegalese holiday but they loved it so whatev haha. However, this time I did go to the large hour long prayer in the morning and it was amazing.  I'm not going to write a ton in this blogs...just lots of pics! And....biggest news of all...the pump is GONE!!!  After 5 months of wanting to pull my hair out with this stupid pump, it is gone.  We had a little party after.  Hoorahhh!
