I can't believe I haven't written anything since February. I would like to pretend that's because I have been super busy but really I had nothing to write about. However, now I do! The assorted picture that follow are all me centric, which is a rarity. Let us blame it on the people I was hanging out with.
The last week of September, the great city of Orodara hosted a science camp run by other volunteers from the region. I had the fun job of hotel and gofer. A combination that I ended up enjoying. This photo is of me right before running out to buy everything on that list in my hands. I'm wearing my only pair of pagne pants, which seems wrong (that I only have one pair after 3 years).
This next photo is of all the volunteer participants in the Science camp of Orodara. We're holding up the camp director and my closes neighbor, Julie.
So the science camp was my last activity in Orodara. Three days later I packed up my stuff and headed to Ouagadougou to start my week of close of service. But before I left I had to take some fun goodbye pictures.
Here I'm with Backo. We are attempting to make tough guy faces but I think I'm laughing a little. Anyways, he is a jeweler, who makes great stuff.
This is me with my tailor, Dressa, who is making the typically Burkinabe picture face in turn making me look crazy with happiness.
Last but not least, I finally got a volunteer with small african children photo. Sadly Poppy is making a silly face. Oh well he was always a trouble maker.
I would say that concludes the blog of Shannon in Africa but I have a Close of Service party Friday morning, so if I remember my camera, I'll get some shots with office staff.
