Sorry for the message coming a day late and I only have small time to email. I got permission from President Cosgrave to email you something today. I hope you are doing well and please rest assured that I am. I was going to send you pictures about us pounding fufu yesterday in the apartment, but those will come next week.
I ate and ate fufu until I could barely walk. But I wanted to come and email you so I was actually walking very fast only to realize that the Internet cafe had lights out, so no email.
Know that I’m doing well and that I’m happy! I also bought another nativity set as well as a very nice Christmas woodcarving. Depending on what happens I might send a package home. We’ll have to wait and see. The mortar already weighs a ton, so I already know that I’m going to have to pay extra for the luggage coming back. But I have one person going home with me that is from Missouri and he has a practically empty suitcase, so that will help.
From your son, whom you will see in about 8 weeks time,
