Yang yang, gamou, family reunions

Visiting Yang Yang...

 AnnMarie and I dressed to impress..
Baby sister Mama and cousin Ramata

 Cauldron of onions AnnMarie and I spent hours cutting. Hanging out with the ladies in the kitchen gets you the best gossip about everyone in the family. Since the gamou was essentially a family reunion, there was a lot of people to talk about! I'm still confused who is 'so and so's' sister's brothers' uncle who was married to that other girl's brother who shares a father with that other guy...I just tuned it out a little.
    Family, friends and places on my bedroom wall. I'm slowly creating a willow tree, or slowly going nuts.
Aunt Ndioba and little sister Ndiaye Touba


Mural time at the health post in Yang Yang!
