That’s right, after a long silence from the internet, I have returned with the news that I have acquired a wonderful, roughly 8-week old puppy. He’s a little malnourished and shy and he is the runt of the litter but the little guy caught my eye and I just couldn’t say no when he was offered to me. His name is–as the title of this post indicates–Juma, which means “Friday” in Jula. Why have i chosen this? Well, he is named in honor of my family’s beloved childhood cat, Friday, as his brindle coloring is indicative of her tabby coat.
You may also be wondering where I’ve been. I’ve been at site, getting to know my community, and working on getting projects off the ground. Since time is limited, I will post this for now but stay tuned since I’m in Ouaga for the week at IST (in-service training) and will upload ALL my pictures of my house and community and will do a full entry to update you all on my life since I’m sure you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to…
Now, another picture to tie you over until I get back to the computer:
Jason: I love the dog, and his FEET: so cool. How lovely to have another Friday in our extended family.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD
