I lurk on your site and thought I should say hello. My name is Judy and I live in the U.S., in the state of Indiana. I lived in Lesotho briefly after college and have returned to Africa several times. I love the continent with all my heart and soul. I am a stay at home mom and will be going to Kenya in April. I have not been to Burundi, but someday I am sure I will.

I just wanted to say hello and let you know I am reading, and that you bring joy to my days.

Thank you for delurking, Judy! So, Kenya in April? What will you be doing while you're there? Two of my nephews go to Rift Valley Academy in Kenya (as I did, quite awhile ago). I appreciate your comments and I'm glad you said hello. Come back again :)

You should try Bookins.com, where you can swap books with other people via mail and just pay for postage. I'd do it if we lived in the States!
