Two-day visit to Burkina Faso

We and three of our colleagues visited a school in Fada-N'Gourma where our cousins Jonathan and Ali live and work in agricultural research/education. Ali just happened to be teaching a class, complete with a field visit, the day we arrived, so we were able to tag along. They gave us another tour of the fields the following day, and we were able to see some of their newest projects.

Having visitors from out of town finally gave us a good excuse to go see the giraffes. It is the last remaining herd of wild giraffes in West Africa. They were very gentle and tame and let us get quite close to them.

For those of you who have been wondering what the three of us look like these days, here we are. We're looking forward to meeting our little guy in just about a month and a half!
