I've been in Dakar doing some research and prep work for some of my projects, that and I needed to get out of the village for a bit, I had my first feelings of bitterness or perhaps you could call it the tiredness of the repetitiveness of life here. Perhaps it is just Ramadan and people are generally more tired and lazy and unwilling to help right now or because it's the hottest it has ever been here and my chin is a haven for skin aliments compounded by the fact that I ate something not properly washed and I've been suffering the consequences for the past five days.
But now I am feeling much better after seeing friends, watching movies and making vegetarian sushi. I will make the five hour trip back to site tomorrow feeling slightly more prepared to help get this trash management project underway. Also school will be starting very soon and will help bring a welcomed change and new routine to village life.
Here is the next round of pictures of my kayak trip, skin infection, my family after my brother's high school graduation, cooking and what my village looks like after the rains. Enjoy!
