A naming day in Denn Guèye

A quick excursion to Denn Guèye on July 16 turned into a longer visit and a meal when it happened to fall upon the day of a naming ceremony for a new member of Aaron’s family.

To celebrate we visited under the shade tree, shifting mats occasionally to keep in the shade, and drank tea. And, of course, there was a wonderful meal.
