My Humble Abode

Ok, I'm going to make this quick because I'm exhausted...but I just wanted to upload these videos to share with you all. Below are two videos giving you a tour first of the outside and then of the inside of my house in Socourani, Mali. They are both low-quality movies because otherwise I would never get them uploaded with the way I get internet access here! If you have any questions about things you see in the video clips, feel free to leave a comment and I'll be sure to get back to you :).

By the way, for those of you that have Facebook, I also just loaded some photos and videos there showing some Christmas photos as well as videos of me jamming on my new djembe (hand drum) with some Malian drummers...pretty cool stuff :).

Inside tour of my house.

Not that you can tell at all...but the inside of my house (as shown in the video) looks significantly better now that my mud walls have been plastered over with concrete. It makes my house much cleaner, and keeps out SOME of the termites :).

Loved the video Owen! So good to see you if only for a few brief moments :)

Thank you Angela! Yeah, a friend of mine (Bob Certo) recommended that I post a video of myself telling a story instead of posting pictures and writing text...it sounds like a good idea especially because it wouldn't take me near as long to prepare...it would just take some time to upload! Maybe next time! :)
