Knowing that tomorrow is going to be a very long day with the start of both the midwife training and the medical treatments at the clinic we decided to give Sol a going away party a day early. Alhassane played his guitar. The two Wodaabe midwife trainees and one Tuareg were there and a drunk soldier or two. There is no refund for drunken behavior on the job…but they are having fun. I won’t get into my resentment about paying for their vacation…we need them as friends.
Anyway we had a lovely party and everyone danced.
Sol danced with Taiboune who is one of the Tuareg midwives. That is not a lump of laundry, she covered herself like a modest young bride.
And tomorrow the real work starts…so what have we been doing until now?
