Christmas Shopping

Our Christmas shopping looks different here.  There is no FedEx, UPS, or anything like that to get Amazon deliveries.  This year, a friend organized a little market with some of the artisans in the area.


Isabelle is modeling a Fulani hat.  Just in case you are wondering if it is just for show, we do see people wearing these in town.






This was one of my favorite wood carvings.

Hand made shoes that can also be custom ordered.


You can even get a belt to match your shoes.  They come without holes, so that you can add them where you want.

Mud cloth for wall hangings or table coverings





Lots of jewelry- You can also as to have something custom made.

Our guard was making tea to share with the merchants.
