ron and ruth just sent me some pics from their visit last month. here we are enjoying a coke at a bar on stilts in ganvie (benin's venice), the village on a lake. you can see appliqué hangings that are typical of benin hanging behind us.
pictured are ron, ruth, alexis and me. alexis is one of the peeps i work with here. he does all our bookkeeping and he speaks english pretty well too! he's a ray of sunshine in my life.
