In mid-May before we left we loaded up two trucks full of Christmas boxes and along with the Mannixes we made a day trip out to two of the Wodaabe sites. We went to Tagalalt first in the morning.
Here are some of the fathers having tea while the children are opening presents. The women were all over at Mallam's house.
Some people really put a lot of effort into these boxes. Some families and individuals put together multiple boxes. Many people included letters and addresses in hopes of corresponding with some of the children.
Imatane took care of Micah for us while we were otherwise occupied.
Some of the kids were scared and didn't know what to think of some of the stuffed animals that were in many of the boxes, but this little girl looks like she loves her dolly.
Micah had fun playing in the empty boxes while we waited for lunch.
We took loads of pics, way to many to post here. You can look at them here:
