News from Sierra Leone

Friday, 23 Mar 2012 | Views [695]

I didn't write this but the Director of the Extra Mile program sent it out as a newsletter this week.  It made me miss Sierra Leone a lot, and I figured he wouldn't mind if I posted it. Anyone that wants to contribute a few $ to help buy the Goderich ... Read more >

So long, Salone

Saturday, 21 May 2011 | Views [376]

Camped out in the Sierra Leone airport thus far without drama. Picture Ide screaming and waving his hands around like a madman this morning when he found something crawling in his pants. It turned out to be...his pants. The hotel taxi and bag wrapping ... Read more >


Goodbyes

Saturday, 21 May 2011 | Views [564]

Sitting in the hotel at the Sierra Leone airport with A FAST CONNECTION!  You don't know how painful it has been, taking 10 minutes for every page to load.  This keyboard does have a broken down-arrow key, but nothing's perfect.   Yesterday was ... Read more >


Goat steak

Saturday, 21 May 2011 | Views [422]

Just kidding!!! For those of you concerned about whether Bubbles would be school goat or school dinner - the school is going to keep her and breed her (no guarantee that her children won't end on someone's plate though).  However, they did change ... Read more >


Seven years of hard labor

Saturday, 21 May 2011 | Views [466]

Today was the big day!  It started off with Haja being an absolute cow to Sue, yelling at her and not wanting to give her a ride to the registry office, never mind that Sue has a broken ankle and it's the most important day of her life.  Haja's reason ... Read more >

Saturday, 21 May 2011 | Views [927]

The day passed relatively uneventfully. Ide's goat was a tremendous success - the only unfortunate aspect being that to get it to his school he had to walk it past my school, and as news of a white man leading a goat travels fast, now everyone at my ... Read more >


Bubbles

Friday, 20 May 2011 | Views [437] | Comments [2]

Nothing could top yesterday for drama, but as usual things are never boring in Sierra Leone.  Now that the cat's out of the bag anyway, at school I tell Mr Le Ferve that Sue and Mr Babia are going to be married.  Mr Booma walks up and joins the conversation, ... Read more >


Just another day at the seaside

Thursday, 19 May 2011 | Views [1217] | Comments [1]

Despite Mr Le Ferve's tempting invitation to attend church in a sweltering hot tin oven, we set off merrily to Number Two beach early Sunday morning.  Haja drove while Christina and I sat in the single front seat; and Ide, Steve, Jackie, and Sue sat ... Read more >
