Extra Photos.


 We are spending our last day in Bo. Tomorrow we will be leaving for Freetown. We will spend 5 days there before we head back to the States.





While we were in Bo we met with another Macalester student, Anoushka. She was working with a local organization for a couple of weeks.


Kumba, a Sierra Leonean student that just graduated from UWC South East Asia came to stay with us and help us with the project for a week.
