Eryn ga Diira
Songhai lesson #1: Diira = to travel. Eryn ga diira (Eryn is traveling)!
After six weeks of successful blog-writing and updates from the office in Gould Hall, I (Eryn) am handing over the work to a friend and recent graduate, Kristopher Chan, for the next three weeks. Instead of organizing posts and researching exciting events in Seattle architecture and summer activities, I’ll be spending the rest of September in Gao, Mali doing a bit of research for my upcoming (and really, ongoing) thesis project. (!!!)
Enjoy the rest of your summer and look for upcoming posts from Mali (…depending on the “stellar” internet connection in the desert),
