Primer and Logo

And don’ t let anybody tell you I never do anything around here… All hands were welcome putting the primer on, inside and outside. Adama decided to put the tire up on the roof, as a “logo”, she says, but it took quite an adventure to get it there. Three people have climbed up and slid down the grass roof several times until  Mohammed, Adama’s son, managed to pin it on the top.

Water tower

The water tower and borehole are ready.  This team of specialists drilled up to 35 mtrs down, without meeting any rocky layers. Something they prayed for. Literally, on the job, every day. We now have running, sweet water, coming from this 2000 ltrs. water tank, and pumped up by the sun. And it’s amazing!

Things to Do: Watch a Wrestling Match, Place to Go: Sanyang

In all the years that I’ve been coming and going to the Gambia, I have never attended a wrestling match. Until this one on a Sunday in Sanyang.
Sanyang’s “Paradise Beach” is a beautiful, relaxing place. Daytrips to the beach are organized daily and from different places. At night, have your dinner (the freshest fish; just caught a few 100 m’s away!) at the nice restaurant on the beach. And, if available, stay in one of the 12 rooms at the Rainbow Lodge. A lovely, peaceful place, with every comfort you’ll need…And every Sunday a beach barbeque and a wrestling match!
