Enchanted by Guinea



So after Peace Corps gave us the go-ahead to leave Ghana (the State Department chartered an Air Ethiopia flight to take us out of Mali), I headed to Guinea to see my little (tall) sweet-pea, Abdoulaye!  Here's a video I put together of our trip, hope you enjoy!  (Combining three of my favorite things: Abdoulaye, West Africa, and Taylor Swift!!)

I'm giving a presentation today to Mrs. Windish's Global Studies and World Languages Academy students at Tallwood (I gave one last semester, too).  I think her students are top-notch - I'm really looking forward to presenting the Prezi below!

  1. Thank you so much for coming in to my classroom Jennifer! I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to teach you and now to see you as a very productive adult where I can learn about your amazing adventures....and even more lucky to have you share them with my students....you're an inspiration! And your video above brought tears to my eyes....even without hearing you two speak, I can see the love that you have for each other in your eyes and movements! I hope to meet your "sweet-pea" one day!

    Much Love, Jessica

    2. So glad to hear it - and I hope for peace for Mali soon though the google feed on the sidebar of my blog leads me to believe otherwise....

  6. Hello, I might have ran into you sometime at Tubaniso, but I stumbled upon your blog from the Peace Corps journal site, and I just have to thank you for introducing me to this song - it sums up my feelings about Mali perfectly. Hope your post peace corps life is going well! Cathy
