My City Family
Today's post is primarily for my Mom to print off all the photos found here so that I can give them to the people I am close with here in the city and here in village. The Pictures below are of Musa, his wife Dabo, and his kids. He was very excited when I told him my mom was coming and that I would bring him these photos. The photos are not the best as Gambians have a tendency to close their eyes every time in anticipation of the flash and I only find out later that they are no good...
|A repeat, Musa and ram about to be slaughtered.|
|Daba the mother here who cooks me great dinners and will soon cook a traditional dish of benachin for my mom in only a week!|
|Kids Abdoul and Sheik in their matching shirts|
|Musa wanted this one... these are all the rams out in front of the compound before Tobaski about to be slaughtered|
|They always close their eyes! I didn't realize this until it was bigger but its all I have.|
My Village Family
Losing a Family Member
One of the kids in my family past away just a short while ago. His name was Malik Ngum and he was an adorable 5 year old boy. He is one of the millions here who die from the many infectious diseases, he had contracted Yellow Fever which is carried by a mosquito similar to the one that carries Malaria. I want to post these pictures for remembrance.
