It’s already getting to the end of February. To me, that means a few things. First it means that we will have been in Africa for more than 5 months. WOW. It seems like just a month ago that we arrived here at our sites. Time is really flying by fast, as we knew it would. I would venture to guess that at this point, if we were to come back to the US, not much would have changed. It makes me wonder how much will have really changed after 27 months from September 15th, 2011.
With the end of February coming, the locals are all insisting that Fall and shortly thereafter, Winter, is on its way. They tell us it will get cold, but you would never be able to imagine it in this current climate. Bright and sunny every day, with beautiful mornings and raging hot afternoons. I guess I can’t really complain too much about all the heat because the great weather in the mornings and later evenings really makes up for the excessive heat during the day. Not to mention my little air-conditioned office that keeps me from going insane each hot day!
The end of February also reminds me that Spring is just around the corner back in the homeland, and that usually means good things for everyone. I’m really looking forward to some good news and stories from back home about fun and positive things happening. Last year was tough for everyone, and I would like to think this coming year can only be better.
I know we havent posted many pictures lately. Its not for lack of cool things to photograph. Its just hard to continue to carry a camera all the time now that we are in a pretty solid routine. Here are some pictures and a short video we took that seemed fun to share.
Here is an interesting bush near our house that caught our eye as we walked by.

Here’s Carol with a local who just got done shopping.
And finally, this is how we spend our Saturday evenings these days…
