The first picture is of Makha’s niece and nephew. The girl (left) is Fatima, and the boy (on right) is Mohammed (who I’m in love with and would adopt as my child in a second). I spend a lot of time at Makha’s house, playing hide and seek with the kids, eating, and trying to understand their Wolof banter. The second picture is of Makha and I at a reggae party on Goree Island a couple of weeks ago. He sure looks like a Jamaican Rasta doesn’t he? (he plays the part well).
