A House Party

For our vacation this year, we are house-sitting for an American Embassy family. In exchange for taking care of their cats, we get:
a fully air-conditioned house, 24/7
a swimming pool in the back yard
a generator that comes on when the power goes off (which it's been doing a lot lately)
American TV shows on ArmedForcesNetwork

Pretty good, deal, eh???? I can change the kitty litter box for that.
Luke Ardill was passing through Niamey. He and Suz were cold! It's not unusual to find one of us under a blanket! It's amazing how much more energy you have when you're not hot all the time.

John chilling with an atlas. The cat is keeping him company.

Suz and Ben Stam playing Wii. Or however you spell it.

Suz and Jess chilling in the pool. That's the life.

Because we are on vacation, we decided (o.k......I decided) that everybody should help make meals. So John and Suz are taking turns with me which means each of us only cooks every 3rd night. Then on Friday night we go out. This restaurant is a boat on the bank of the river. You can even hire it when the river is high to go on a 3-hour cruise/dinner. It's a bit expensive, though, to do that. Just to sit there and eat is very reasonable. The food was good, but John said it wasn't enough. God treated us to a spectacular sunset that night, too.

OK, next time I'm going to tell you about my work since you think I do nothing but PARTY!!
