So we made it to Togo today! It was a long drive to get here and we had some car trouble... One of our vehicles lost a whole wheel with part of the axle on the way, everyone was alright but it did add several hours of culture experience to the middle of our trip. We had an opportunity to speak french with the locals about everything from politics to school.. it was amazing. They sang for us, and we sang some songs both in french and english and played clapping games with them. A few of them befriended me and gave me a blue necklace, a few of the other intern girls recieved similar gifts :) Continuing our journey with two cars instead of the three for all twelve of us was cozy and a lot of fun. Our car enjoyed playing a game of figuring who we would be if we were disney characters, vegetables or in different eras. I can't wait to see Kabiyeland in the light of the sun, it was dark when we came in so we couldn't see many of the views, but I already know it will be beautiful! It's getting late here so I better go catch up on some sleep. Hope you all are doing well! Keep us in your prayers, we'll be on a long hike tomorrow!
