I got a haircut today. the odd thing is I’m not sure how it happened. looking back I remember Gwen saying ‘Nate, you need a haircut’ and a few days later I found myself walking to her house for her to cut it. so it goes…
another thing, I’ll be honest in saying that things aren’t always ‘hunky dorey’ here in Senegal. Some of the events in the past few days have sent me on a little of a rollercoaster. I won’t speak of them here (online), but I have done alot of thinking, talking with others, and journaling.
humorously, alot of us have had instances where we’ve turned locals’, mostly children, world upside down. It sometimes happens when we greet kids in wolof (naga deff)… they stand there with a blank and confused look for a minute. I think the same thing happened today as a bunch of us started using the little wooden sticks, think a big toothpick that costs 25 CFA, to clean our teeth after eating.
I am in good health.
