bamako





hopefully you all got our email with the little update....
the first picture is of tessa and ellen obviously. they are standing in the middle of the complex. to the left is the lady's house that manages the complex. and our place is on the right. the gals are in a different place just across from the building we are staying in. theirs is set up much like ours.

the middle picture is of the place we are staying in. the dog's name is shadow and our room is the one behind the grill. you should be able to see the window. the building we are in has the kitchen, dining area, classroom, and four bedrooms.

the last picture is of our room. this morning we did some unpacking and sorting. you can see the mosquito nets hanging from the ceilings. we don't need them here because all the windows and doors are screened in.
it's 106* and a little overcast

It's so neat to be able to see where you guys are staying! Dito Jared's comment about Wifi - you don't seem so far away now!

Hey You-all - Glad you sound upbeat and hopeful - in spite of the heat and "everything else" that smells and looks different...We love you three and look forward to your updates and pix.
p.s. keep an eye on Princess - so she doesn't try some new "protein" as they wiggle and crawl past her...
