After Church I drove Badou (Granny) home and it was quite a site leaving church with the whole congregation watching me. Lots of fun.
Church was a great experience and I even introduced myself to the congregation in French. I could answer the Pastor's questions including if I was a Christian and what denomination I belonged to, which I correctly pronounced as an Orthodox (try saying Orthodox in French). I also committed to building them a roof for their Church that has yet to be finished. More on that later.
They have multiple uses. One thing they can do is protect crops against bugs. Not a bad idea. They can also act as shade for a window. Or as I do and so does Adou's granny they can go over your bed.
Yup, rat is a fine food across the region. (I can't wait to ask the Ugandans if they eat it too.) Rat hunts take place in the fields and in this particular one they were digging for it although I think it got away.
To make her mad money, Granny spins cotton. She is very good at it too.
