I miss her.

A picture of my Mother-in-Law before she passed.  We spent a lot of time at her house in GA.  Most of that time was spent in the kitchen where this picture was taken.  She was a devoted Christian and a great lady.

I’ve got family in NYC, just down from Chinatown.

Here’s a photo of my cousin and my daughter.  I took this about two years ago in my cousin’s $6mil. penthouse apartment in the lower east side of Manhattan.  It was a great time to learn some family history.  I hope to go back to NYC to visit my cousin soon.

Front of ‘my’ house in Rufisque,Senegal 1997

See how short my hair was?  In the picture with my is Mohamet and Mamadou. We are sitting fromof Massuer’s old Mercedes diesel.  He has since bought a different car. I’m not sure who took this picture.  I’m tempted to say it is a self portrait, but that doesn’t seem likely.  This picture would have been taken in the afternoon because the sun is behind our backs.

Businessman and Entrepreneur

Here are two of the brothers in front of the Building supplies store that one brother owns.  They have a good little racket going on.  One brother builds houses and the other brother sells materials for home construction.  This negative had lots of scratches on it so I caution you not to peer too deeply at the quality else you may find lots of post processing.

Japanese Cemetary

During my 2002 trip to Japan, I took time out to visit some interesting places.  This photo taken in a cemetary shows how crowded the cemetaries are.  Since the country is so crowded, all space is at a premium.  Most of the small parks I visited had an area inside of it that was dedicated for burials and worship.

We were nearly attacked on our way to Nazca Peru.

On our way towards Nazca, Peru, there were demonstrations by one of the major labor organizations.  These demonstrations forced our bus and the busses of other major carriers to pull off of the road and await the dispersion of the massed crowds.  While we waited we enjoyed some local music and the delicious “Trucha con Arroz”.

Mamadou loves his football at the arena in Rufisque, Senegal 1997.

Mamadou watches the football action in this photo from 1997.  You may be able to see my trusty leather backpack hanging from the fence.  I believe that my mother has since claimed that bag as her own.

The children, they love me!

For whatever reason, the kids seemed to really enjoy my presence.  Marietou even starte to tolerate my odd appearance after 12 days in her house.  One can see that she allowed herself to be held by me in this photo.

Little Marietou in Rufisque, Senegal 1997

Little Marietou was so scared of me when I first arrived in 1997.  She was the only child that wouldn’t shake my hand.  Everytime I started to say something she would run away or cower under her mother’s clothing.  During the trip I took this year she acted completely different.  This time she wouldn’t STOP shaking my hand and she started crying when I left her house on the way to the airport.
