Sweater Weather

I wore a cotton sweater for approximately half the day today. I even joined the Sénégalese is calling it cold. I’m impressed.

Have I mentioned that the only warm bathing sessions I have were in the village?? It was great! Aissatou heated water for my bucket showers. I could do that in Dakar too, but my sulkiness in response to the cold is not outdone by the work effort involved in the water-heating process. So, freezing showers it is.
