Ten days in Bodoli

Our time in the village of Bodoli was wonderfully refreshing. Without electricity or Internet access, we were able to "unplug," spend some time alone and together, and do some reading that never seems to fit into our city schedule.

We were also thankful to be able to participate in village life a bit. Our host invited us to sit in on various village meetings, so we were able to meet lots of new people.

One day, Beth shadowed our host's family to learn what a day in the life of an African woman looks like. Wow, they work hard! Everything from hauling water from the well, pounding millet, washing clothes by hand, working in the fields, and, yes, plucking the chicken before it goes into the pot.
