Guess who's come to Bamako...!!!!

With Foulé (Abdoulaye's mom), Annie and Mom (holding Christine)
Annie spent a day traveling to Bamako from village to get here.  Abdoulaye's mom spent over 30 hours in a car from Conakry.  My mom spent over 24 hours in planes and airport terminals from Virginia.  I made some pumpkin and potato soup and a cardboard sign to welcome them.  After all, I am already here!  More posts to follow on our Bamako adventures!

:) thanks ladies! Anna, everyone keeps telling my mom and i we're like two drops of water and they can't tell us apart and Marija-folks continue to say, dead-pannedly- that she's much better looking and Ashley, everyone agrees that Mali is much sweeter with a mom in it :) miss you girls! see you so soon!
