The following is just a collection of images from my travels over the last 3 weeks. Special thanks to the NGO Tostan, to the Peace Corps volunteers  in Senegal (especially you Tenly and Nicole) and to the lovely people who live in the village of Saam Njaay.

Sunset out on the Delta, Senegal

with one comment

SENEGAL

This was the view as I was along for the ride as Molly Melching, CEO of Tostan NGO and Sanjit Bunker Roy of the Barefoot College of Engineers in India visited the last of the day of several small villages in Senegal to discover which 5 villages would be the best to serve as models for the implementation of solar energy. I was recording the conversation during the town hall meeting (a circle of chairs under a beautiful tree.) Just as the conversation turned to the cost of batteries, the battery in my mp3 recorder finally gave out. A villager and I both noticed the sunset and he escorted me out to a good location. In my opinion I was about 5 minutes late for the fiery red sun we both saw from the meeting circle and the ideal baobab tree silhouette still evades me. Senegal. December 25, 2008.

Keur Thione Saar Village in Senegal.

with one comment

This was the welcoming we received in the village Keur Thione Saar where Beth and I visited an Operation Smile patient that was recovering from surgery. The whole town came out to give us a formal greeting complete with  music and dancing. It was one of two villages we visited yesterday, Monday, Dec 22. I hope to go back under less pomp and circumstance.
