Again- remember you can click on all of these to make them bigger!

This is me eating the okra stew and banku ( the white) --which I made! The okra stew is what contained the stomach and cow hide that I wrote about. The Banku is made of casava bean and corn meal and basically is served in a big glob. Everyone shares out of these two plates, eating out of their RIGHT hand and dips the banku into the stew.

Gifty doing most of the work cooking the banku because I was not strong enough
The local sprit tree-which is very important to the traditional faith. I was lucky enough to be taken to it to experience how they pray
