Another fun week in Abuja, Nigeria. My fourth graders are simply wonderful. They are so kind, polite, funny, talkative, inquisitive… I love them.
The week just flew by with major wind and hurricane rains three of the evenings. One of which I went to a great Indian restaurant and sat up on the top floor and looked out as the sky lit up with streaks of lightning, howling winds and sideways rain. The storms here are intense to say the least.
Last night we had another pool party in celebration of the Thai (really SE Asia) Water Festival. It was really fun, excellent BBQ, silliness with water, great dancing… This group of teachers, administrators and friends from embassies, Medicine San Frontier and other NGOs is full of energy and interesting. It will be sad to say goodbye. I can only hope that I have such a great group to join in China next year.
Next weekend we have four days off, so I am hoping to go hike Aso Rock or Zuma Rock – both famous here in Nigeria, do another HASH and visit a handcraft market. Thus I will hopefully have a lot more photos to share.
But for now I will leave you with a few new ones. Have a great week! Gretchen
