I never thought I would go to Africa. I have lived in VA for such a long time that even thinking about leaving the US was nonsense.

First time out of the country – in fact a lot of firsts since I have been in Senegal. The best things are rice and meat, roughhousing with my Senegalese bros and quick power naps with my Senegalese sis.

I’m so happy I was able to come. Thanks to Mr. Alter and Ms. Smiley for making sure I came. Shout out to Mr. Nelson for looking out for me. The little things do not go unnoticed.

I told Ms. Smiley ‘if I ever go hungry, I am going to fight you.’ I haven’t fought her yet.
