Conversations with Vittoria

It's not a present, it's a gift.

Mary's Seventh Birthday

It was a low-key affair, as she had to compete with school and Vittoria's dance recital. But the Rice Krispie treats seem to have made it all worth it.

Vittoria's First Dance Recital

She seemed to like it. (Sorry it's so washed out. She's on the far right.)

After the dance, Vittoria said "I was the only one who was good."

Mask Pfest!!!

The West African Mask Pfestival was last week in D├ędougou. It was so much pfun!

Oh, look! There's me!

The masks were mostly of animals.  They would come out and dance to drums and little flute type instruments.  I would say a recorder, but not exactly.

There was also a dance at night that was cool.  Their masks were made of shells.

This orange guy was one of my favorites, but I was never able to get a good picture of him. :(
