Looking Good

The other week a chief from a neighboring village came to say hello. Not that unusual except for one thing- the new chief is a WOMAN! YAY!

I didn't get to talk to her much, but it's pretty dang cool and we're all happy. So to commemorate this happy occasion we took photos. But there was ANOTHER amazing thing that happened on this day- my host day was wearing the fabric I gave him for Christmas (from America) and I was wearing the fabric they gave me!

Can you figure out what the print of Joseph's outfit is? Maybe Andrew Jackson, Ben Franklin or George Washington could help you figure it out?

It's dolla dolla bills! It looks so awesome in person. I love it. Also, my dad has a shirt that matches the dress I'm wearing, I just need to get it from Togo to him! 

And then since the camera was out we all took photos! 

Marie, her daughter Ami and her daughter Ashley!

My amazing brothers- matching! 

Look at that smile! Marie, my always smiling host mom.
