Yesterday we spent a good share of the day traveling the route from Bolgatanga to Ouagadougou, using taxi, a truly comfortable old Renault, an old Landcruiser and finally a sort of taxi to Hotel Yibi, where we have stayed several times now. The purpose of this trip is to deliver David Revell to the international airport here, bound for home and back to class. He is currenly writing his blog. I will be interested in hearing his ‘take’ on all that he has done and seen. We are very pleased to have had his company. He has earned the freindship of some good people here. Since my minutes are up at this internet in Ouagadougou, I am forced to be brief and tell you WE SAW A HERD OF ELEPHANTS ON THE WAY HERE! It was truly excitng as this is no wildlife reserve. The herd of 8 to 10 were migrating. I was the first to point it out to all as we traveled the route. They were very close to the road amongst the trees. A farmer may npt be as pleqsed as us to see them as they are capable of ruining everything upon which they trod.
I close in saying we love it here as the food is much more diverse. The French influence. David Stone
