Venue sorted – the YMCA, Gambia – and now thanks for the heads-up from Peace Corps volunteer, Justin Jewett, about ‘Omar’s Peace Corp Kitchen‘, we have a cook for our Gambian students, during their Photos Tell Stories photography workshop. We’re looking forward to Omar’s chicken yassa for lunch tomorrow – we’ve heard only great things about his cooking!

And, we are now wifi connected, with thanks to QCell, Gambia, for  the E303 USB Stick and Huawei AF23 Sharing Router

We’ll be able to update during the workshop, thanks to QCell’s partnership.

More on that once we get started tomorrow morning.

Stay with us!
