yesterday, we went out shopping for some necessities in cotonou - one of the biggest cities in this area. it took FOREVER - we went around to about 4 different grocery stores just to get the best deals on what we needed. magna was so kind and said she would treat Tania and I to some cloth for a dress! there were SO MANY patterns and colors and types of material to chose from! it took me FOREVER to find one that i loved, but in the end, i found the exact right one for me :) the seamstress may be coming by today to take measurements for us so that we can get our outfits! i’m excited!!
