Yes, I said it, it is cold outside at night…I’m not for sure of the real temperature, but I have to layer on the clothes….
Things are going very well for me, I am getting used to not hearing English everyday, the metric system, and the food.
The past month has flown by and now the holiday season is upon us! I’m sad to be missing the holidays with my family, but I’m glad I don’t have to Christmas shop, or send cards or stand in line to return things…. I plan to decorate some kind of tree…….
Oct. 30-Nov 9 was SAIO
Sallon International de L’Artisanat de Ouagadougou

It happens every Oct. in the even number of years. It is the largest craft fair in the continent of Africa. There are on average 100,000 visitors a year. It is to promote African crafts as a cultural expression.
It is a very large craft fair with lots of stuff from all around the Africa (mostly Benin, Togo, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, and a few random other countries) anything can be found here, and some things are expensive, but you can bargain anything… in true fashion i bought a purse!!!!
Lately we have been doing some hands on activities such as making pourage, doing an AIDS survey at the local school, going to the CREN (a hospital for very malnourished babies and mothers) and baby weighing!!!!
