Where would you go? I have a couple of good options here, although the biggest part of the plan is to be busy so that I don’t think about my family at home. I know of a couple people heading to the coast to enjoy the beautiful beaches. Others are staying here or having visitors from home. Me? I am going to Timbuktu. Well, actually I think Christmas will be in Ougadougou with New Year’s being Timbuktu. I have joined up with a couple other girls (and hoping to convince one more….especially because she speaks French!) and will be doing our best to see as much of Burkina Faso and Mali as we can in three weeks. Then it will be one last week of packing up and heading to Accra to catch my flight home. Hence, no real need for Christmas packages. I appreciate so much those of you who have thought of me and will especially look forward to celebrating Christmas with you when I get home. Two months today!
Kris, I keep forgetting, the satchets are plastic, probably about the same as a heavy duty ziplock. I can’t tell if you are asking just to find out or to point out to me that this is also not very environmentally friendly, which is true. I have figured it out though, and ml for ml of water I need, the satchets are the way to go. Good to hear from you Donna! Brian and Chrissy, congratulations on the arrival of baby Zachary. I’m sure cousin Ally is very excited!
