Bicycles built for two (Saturday, 10 July 2010)

July 10, 2010

Today we received our bicycles and that means class got out "earlier". My host family said something about going to a funeral, which could be interesting but would interfere with other social activities that are happening today, so I’m hanging out here where there is reasonable Internet and thought I’d upload some photos.

Figure 1 shows me, Jenny, and my host brother Claude at some monuments in the city center. Jenny is mimicking the pose of the statue; the shirt I am wearing was of the two "Africtures" I got.

Figure 2 shows my "community host"’s house at my post. It is in a place that has been dug out of a hill; the picture was taken from the top of the path that leads down to the house. You can see: his mother, his son, his wife, his daughter (note that children may not be related directly by blood) and in the background, in front of the shack, is his actual daughter that is studying pharmacology somewhere.

Figure 3 is a picture of the path that I was on when I took the picture shown in figure 2.
