We spent the night at the hotel in Ouelessebougou after visiting the Ouelessebougou Alliance compound with the team. We had a nice freeze dried spaghetti meal with an appetizer of chips and salsa. That sure tasted good! There were beds and mosquito nets for 23 at the compound. We and a few of the translators stayed at this lovely hotel.
There were just a few things we forgot to pack. Sheets. Pillowcases. Towels. Toilet paper. Soap. We did have a bed and a mosquito net, and complimentary flip flops for the shower that was over the toilet.
My tote bag is a reminder of our other life in another place.
The potty pot is what is used in place of toilet paper in traditional Malian bathrooms. I found some tissues in the bottom of my tote.
One think we did think to pack for tonight: Benadryl. And we had a bottle of water. We got a bit of sleep.
