It’s great being in Ouaga, I went to Burkina Pas Cher, our version of Bed Bath and Beyond, and I am eating amazing delicious food, but I miss village terribly.
My miss list
I miss not having internet: The Internet in our hotel gives me a headache and I almost wish that we did not have it all because it is so slow.
I miss going to the latrine and having gravity remove the waste.
I miss boiling my water so that my bucket bath is perfect
I miss my cat
I miss cooking my own food
I miss sipping tea with my neighbors
I miss eating with my accoucheuse (midwife) and Nurse
I miss joking around with my major
I miss saying hello to everyone in Moore
I miss giving my number to the Boutiquier to put (unites) minutes on my phone in Moore
I miss biking around my village
I’ll be back en brousse in a couple of days, but as the cliché says “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”
