My Travel Advice of the Day
First, you should not order or eat a hotdog pizza or tuna pizza in Burkina Faso. It’s wrong. The smell is wrong, everything about this is wrong. However, when it comes to coffee, it’s ok in desperate moments to drink cold, instant Starbucks coffee, out of a water bottle. Desperate measures can be taken in desperate times especially if the hotel lacks good coffee.
When given a live chicken, it’s not ok to try and bring it back to America, even if it was a gift from your sponsored child’s family. Traveling around with a chicken is not advisable. Traveling on a plane with a chicken is not advisable and going through customs in America with a chicken dead or alive is definately not advisable.
When writing a blog about your hair being arranged by squirrels, it gives the pastor on the trip ammunition to constantly remind you that you have a squirrel under your hat. And…I would like to remind this particular pastor, who might happen to read this blog, that I can pre-order his lunch tomorrow and it might look like this. I have this power.
When playing with African children, if you use a ball the size of their mud hut, please remember that this ball can take down small children like a bowling ball takes down the pins. The only difference is, the children get up laughing and ask for more, and the pins, well they just get scooped up.
…try to avoid the trees.
Do something about it.
Tomorrow, we will go to another Compassion center, and I know there are kids waiting to be sponsored at this particular project. I have the inside skinny. If you want to sponsor a child, let me know because I can hook you up. We have girls, boys and more girls and boys!
Goodnight from Burkina Faso. It’s late and I am off to bed.Forgive all my typo’s and late night grammatical errors. My editor, Steve Jones, will eventually fix it all, and that is one of the many reasons I love him!
