I went mainly to get a better idea of what daily life is like for my patients, since, for most of them, Galmi is considered a pretty big town. Thought you might enjoy the little village of Gidan Miko 1 & 2 from the other side of my camera. Enjoy.

|Women and girls pounding millet kernels into|
powder to be cooked and then covered in sauce.
|We drew quite the crowd.|
|But not everyone was happy to see us.|
|Many of the little ones are not used to white|
faces, so having 3 of us there was quite scary!
|Most didn't want to come too close and cried|
when we smiled and said hello.
|Others didn't seem to even notice we were there.|
|Todays inoculations included polio, tetanus, and hepatitis B.|
|Mommies of all ages brought their little ones for shots.|
|Dust-covered older siblings made for a captive audience.|
|The local greasy-spoon.|
|Fisher-Price, village style.|
|Everyone was incredibly friendly.|
|My Momma and her newest African grandbaby.|
|The kids were surprisingly cautious at first, but then warmed to us in no|
|They begged to have their photos taken.|
|And still some pretended to hide from the camera.|
