It's About Time!

People have been asking us for ages if we have a website yet. Well, we've hesitated to put one up because of the work and maintenance involved, and the fact that it would be so static and boring. We wanted something that was more dynamic, where we could not only post new stuff on a regular basis, but interact with people like you who are following our adventures, where you can make comments and ask questions, where we can respond, and so on.

A blog seems to fit the bill, so Voila! Here it is!

Our upcoming trip to the USA to touch base with friends and partners before going back to Burkina Faso struck us as the perfect excuse to begin. Writing posts of our adventures on the road will give me something to do when Kathy's driving, and reading them will entertain Kathy when she's not playing her role as chief navigator while I'm driving. Kathy obviously won't need a navigator while she's driving because women are multi-taskers. She should be able to drive and read a map at the same time, don't you think? And if we get lost once in a while... well, that will make a great story too! Stay tuned...
