You, Me, and Ebola: We Need To Talk.
I realize this is a very long post.  Let’s just say that it’s an issue that deserves some depth.  But if you can’t stick around for the whole explanation of my perspective on Ebola as an American living in West Africa, that’s cool.  Here’s a brief summary, ...

On Wednesday we attended a concert hosted by the French Institute (well, outside the building, since it's still under reconstruction).  It could roughly be categorized as 1970s French folk-pop set in Africa.  The lead singer-songwriter was a French guy who'...

Lunch with Marguyas
Today we made our own alloco!  Just slice some plantain bananas, fry them in oil, et voilà.  Céline made a refreshing avocado-orange salad and we washed it down with an orange-mint cocktail. So good, even the marguya lizards came by to take a look!

Sneak-Peak
A typical classroom in our school.  While it's much better equipped than most African schools, the fact that this is one of the top ten high schools in the entire country gives Céline and I some food for thought.  More to come in the next few weeks.

We ventured into Treichville and Marcory today, the quarters (especially Marcory) known for being the location of choice of the expatriate community.  We successfully got Céline subscribed for a badminton club at the impressive "Palais de Sport" (Red star o...

Food Successes
After the previous blog post about our food-related struggles, I thought I should share some of our food-related successes!  We're just beginning to get acquainted with Ivoirian cuisine, after a few false starts, so this isn't meant to be an introduction to...

The Meaning of Chicken
     This story was on our fourth day in Abidjan, so it already
seems a bit quaint.  But when you first
arrive anywhere truly new, a major problem is what you can eat, where you can
eat it, and even if food-related words mean exactly what you always thought...
