Just so everyone is aware:
I leave Niger the morning of August 14 at 4:30 am. (Y'all keep asking, so I decided I'd tell you). I arrive home the 16th.
If you'd like to send mail, you should send it to the address listed on the entry entitled "Write to me!" by the end of this week. (Coincidently, today or tomorrow)
There is also the option of writing to my home address, (post tomorrow) where I will still accept your sentiments upon my return and feel very grateful for them. I like letters all over the place, and if you're thinking of me, would love to hear how you are.
Aichatou's final exam has been moved to the 28th of July. So it looks like we will be in Niamey until the 29th, when we will leave for Zinder, 12 hours away on the other side of the country, where Aichatou's family lives. We will be there for about a week and a half and then return to Niamey. I'll have about four days and then I'll be on my flight home! Time is certainly flying!
We are currently in the middle of hosting three cousins of Marie and Laurey, so life here is busy busy. A picture entry will be needed again soon. You'll see why.
Thanks for all the GREAT comments my friends! They make me feel so loved. Keep up the good work! (please?)
