Happy from Bujumbura

We siblings share many good memories of our visits to Bujumbura, capital city of Burundi. Some of these include:

--staying at the Cox's guesthouse on trips from our remote mission station
--dipping french fries in mayonnaise at the lakeside cafe
--watching hippos climb out of Lake Tanganyika; we observed from a safe distance
--shopping for flip-flops once a year at Bata Shoes
--checking out books in English from the American Embassy library

Oh, and sleeping under mosquito nets to escape the ravenous little flies every night (not such a good memory!). I'd be curious to hear what experiences were most memorable for my brother and sisters.

My brother sent this video link to our entire family. Watch and enjoy a small slice of life in the Bujumbura of today.

Hey Laurie, I finally made it to Mt Angel Abbey. It's something I've wanted to do ever since you talked about it.
