I was racking my brain for inspiration today and I thought of a cool, easy, post series idea. I love looking through my old photos because so many of them tell great stories, are super silly, or just bring back good memories. So every once in awhile I’ll just post a photo I’ve taken, tell you the where/when/why, and maybe say a few more words. Hopefully this will also encourage me to take more pictures so that I have continuous fodder for this series!
Here’s the first one:
Me and MoMo, one of my Peace Corps besties, during one of our “under-the-mango-tree” Swahili lessons. Probably still our first month in Tanzania (June or July 2009). What do you think of my braided hair? I actually really liked the result, but it took HOURS of sitting still while my host aunt pulled on my head to get it done! ❤ Kibaoni (the name of our homestay village, where we lived with host families during Peace Corps training).
