Goodbye Celebration

On our last day in Kati, we had a little balloon fest to celebrate our time there! Our Malian family will be missed very much.

My big sculpture gets a pagne (traditional wrap skirt of Mali)

Everyone decided my creation looked like Kafune the most,
so here she is next to her balloon likeness.

Maria, our amazing host

Her husband, Ibrahim

The kids

Sita, one of our fabulous cooks

Boi is only three and he already knows
how to be a ham for the camera.

The Best of Mali, Christiane, age 7.

Everyone poses with the Kafune scupture!
