We have only been in Senegal for about 10 hours but a lot of warmth has come our way.
First, we’ve certainly experienced the warm temperatures- it’s 86 or so right now and humid. Bryan and Andrew are literally drenched in sweat from playing an intense soccer match. We are all enjoying the break from the sun.
Second, the people of Senegal have made us feel instantly at home. We’ve been with Bandia and his family for most of the day and they have shown us their house, taken us shopping, cooked us incredible meals, played with us, and much more. We have held babies and spoken with elders.
And third, being here has so immediately reminded us of why we do it – the warmth of feeling fully engaged.
All for now, Team Senegal.
