April heat...again.

What this blog entry is really about is a hodgepodge mix of photos from April...I'll just narrate after each photo. Enjoy!


Jon cooking at Daniel's house in Gaoua.


Brenda, the master chef of our Southwest family, cooking...empanadas! And they're damn good. With limited resources!


Hercules on my porch with the poster I made in the background...it's for my CEP Exam Jeopardy Review Game. One of the activities I've been working on is preparing my CM2 students for their CEP exam, with the hope that they'll be able to continue to the middle school level. Fun times! And using Jeopardy as a review exercise is great. I also created the 'CEP Exam Jeopardy Review Guide for Peace Corps Volunteers', which will hopefully help for PCV generations to come!


Grace getting henna-style tattooing done. A really big thing among women here in Burkina Faso, they use natural products.


Another simple but delicious meal made by Brenda at my house. Dude, it's garlic bread. In Burkina Faso!



Madame Constance also getting the temporary traditional tattooing done by Aicha.


One of the many ways that Hercules is found asleep in my house. So cute!



A bunch of us in the Southwest exploring the "municipal forest" in Diebougou.






Inside the caves in Diebougou which used to be used by the French army over 50 years ago...I think.




Traditional Easter pictures with the Ouattara family!




Madame Ouattara: like my extended, really cool aunt here in Burkina Faso!




Me and my Burkina Faso family.



...and another sleeping picture of Hercules to hold you over until the next time I blog about him. Seriously, he makes my day! haha
