|This man was selling jewelry and came to our yard because of a large amount of women at our well. During cashew season there are a lot more traveling salesmen.|
|We buy shoes from men like this that travel from village to village with their bikes loaded in shoes. Flip flops are $2.00, but he does have some that are $1.00.|
|Michael needed a battery for his motor (mo-ped type bike) so we stopped in this store in Ziguinchor. Micah was happily helping him buy the battery.|
|We got these two buckets for a great deal!|
Now Michael tries to find light bulbs.
|Here is a hardware store that we also frequent. You can see the machete's on the right side of the picture and the heads to rakes and shovels on the left as well as many other various items. |
|This is the entrance to a large market in Ziguinchor. We don't like to take the kids there too much since it is often crowded so we left the kids at the hotel with another missionary and ventured there alone.|
|There is also your choice of meats. Besides beef there is also goat, chicken and fish.|
Vegetables are everywhere you look, so it isn't hard finding what we want.
|These carrots looked nice so we purchased a kilo (2.2 lbs) to hopefully last a week, if they don't go bad that is. Without a refrigerator we have to be careful not to buy too much but yet buy enough that we aren't going into market every day.|
|As we collect our supplies on our monthly trips into Ziguinchor, we have learned to walk carefully through the washed out roads during the rainy season. During the dry season, the roads are much easier to maneuver.|
Thank you for walking with us on our supply run. We pray blessings to you as you may be going out to get your shopping done as well! You never know who you will meet or what new friend you may make. We have met many on our supply runs and made many friends.
