Je Voudrais Commander le Hummus…

For those of you who have been following the Burkinabe news, there were a couple hiccups in the school year. Because of this, spring break sprung a little early and it was a scramble to get somewhere new in country.

A few of gathered in Banfora. It was perfect. Seeing everybody that was there was pretty super. And a brand new sparkly hotel and pool with wifi (!) and delicious hummus for only four dollars was calling our names pretty much everyday.

One day we went to marché because Sara and me love going to marché together. Another day we went to see the hippos at the lake. First of all there is a lake. There is no standing water left near my village because of the long dry season but the southwest is a very different place. The hippos were neat! Except they were really fast underwater. They would pop up fightig way to the right and in a few seconds they would pop up 100 meters away. It was a little unnerving that everybody kept going on how hippos kill more people a year than sharks. Plus our little wooden canoe had to be periodically bailed out because of a slow leak. So the combination of that made the hippo searching much more exciting.

Hummus, wifi and a futile search for a man that makes shoes from tires. Oh spring break in Africa.
