This was taken when my Director of the EE sector came for our first meeting to do a needs assesment for a surrounding five villages and the local French school and all its teachers. The women in my village, Daru Thiouben, cooked lunch and carried it there so that we could eat befor we began. In the picture is one of my village mothers, three of my sisters, including who I was named after, my friend, and my village father, the Chief Mbaye Thoubou. We ate Ceeb u jen, or rice and fish. This picture was taken in the fall of 2004.
