Okay folk i am going to be Back in Hamdallaye for the next three weeks where I can pass those lovely remaining days of Hot-Hot season before the rains come. Two weeks ago in my village my watch, "thanks strieff family" registered the temp at 132F Freak'n hot. I think my weight is down to 175lbs, my beard is about a full fingers length and my mustache is handlebaring quite lovely.
It feels wonderful to be here in Niamey enjoy some great food, better beer, and share stories with my freinds.
Since I will be in Hamdallaye for the next few weeks feel free to call anytime.
