Lovely books, wonderful story lines, and great imagery.
Warning: Do NOT attempt to read these books while in the depths of a month long fast. C.S. Lewis' detail and descriptions of food are darker and more evil than the White Witch herself. Curse you witch Jadis for your tempting Turkish Delight when you know I'm struggling through my 14 hour water/food free day...

Today I spent my first official day as a Senegalese farmer. It was tough, but respectable work.
It was so hot and humid, I sweat a lot (nothing new there). However, after sitting in the shade and “drying off” for a few minutes, I had nice, white, solid salt crystals formed on my arms. They tasted like pure salt, which was fascinating. Then it quickly made me realize how intensely dehydrated I must’ve been.
Note to parents/family/friends: Please add Gatorade to care packages from now on J
