Second Week in Senegal

We are quickly adapting to our new home and to life in a Senegalese City.  Depending on the source and where the boundary is drawn the city of Thies has between 300 and 600 thousand inhabitants. Our area of the city is quite compact so we are only seeing a fraction of the neighborhoods in this town.

Host families are being visited, lectures are being secured and preparations for field trips, and service assignments have all been underway in the past few weeks.  Our hosts are most gracious as they respond to our requests for visits and information.  We have been delighted with the growing number of friends that we are getting to know in Thies.
