Personal highlights

  1. The mission: probably the most modern buildings in Loiyangalani town
  2. Traditions: talking to the fathers and learning about arranged marriages
  3. Straw huts: sleeping under a mosquito net in a very traditionally built hut
  4. Pool party: staying up late and enjoying the refreshing wet inside the pool
  5. Old map: quick reminder of how young all African nations are (see video)
