Everything but the Kitchen Sink...Wait They've Got that Too!

Friday afternoon usually finds us dropping by Four Corners to visit the local vegetable stands.  One of the corners features a barely formal outdoor shop where the vendor lays out all manner of treasures from the western world on the ground.  Magazines, books, three ring binders, decades old apple computers - these  items are all displayed and perused by passing customers.  Imagine our delight last week when we discovered that he even had a kitchen sink for sale!

But that's not all.  This week I was shocked to see a man examining a pair of these:

Hmm, what are those doing in Niger?  Of course, I had to get out and ask the vendor how much they were.  He wanted $20 dollars for them.  I'm not even sure that he knew what they were for.  I declined, of course, and opted for the free picture instead!


  1. Hi! My name is Kara Rupnow, and my husband and I are planning teach at Sahel Academy this upcoming school year. We are currently raising support and presenting to many different groups. Since we haven’t been there yet, we don’t have a lot of pictures or exciting things to show. We would love to show some pictures of Sahel Academy It would be great to let people see the students we will be serving. We have enjoyed looking at pictures you have posted on your blog. May we have your permission to show a picture of your class? Would you be willing to email me the picture of your class dressed up like dinosaurs so that we can display it in a higher quality than if we just “borrowed” from your blog? We'd also appreciate any other pictures you might think would be helpful. My address is Thanks and we look forward to meeting you!

  2. HA HA HA!!! That's BRILLIANT! I LOVE IT!!!
