Slow news isn't good news
FAVL blog is a little slow these days since I am traveling with 26 other family members. Lots of book reading also (my family are all readers). For myself, Italo Calvino, If on a winter's night a traveller... which my mother brought. A wonderful book for reading while traveling on a bus for hours at a time.
Unfortunately, while we are enjoying good weather, and Spain's victory, the rains in northern Ghana are not so pleasant, and they have blown the roof off the Sherigu library. Pictures at right. Some of you will recall this is the second such case- last year it was the Bereba library's turn. A sad fact of life in rural Africa that can only be resolved by... you guessed it... more careful attention, more work, more funds.
