Festival International des Masques et des Arts de D├ędougou





Years ago, when I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Burkina Faso I came on a village where the people were celebrating this festival (1981). I took a number of pictures that I have been using in presentations over the years. I will have to get them scanned and pointed at some point. I am glad to see that there is a festival there now. for those of you who read French, here is an article in the local newspaper, le faso. Enjoy the video!

Sunning after a Long Winter

 

 
While taking a morning walk around Mont Alto campus today I came across this groundhog in the soccer field. He was laying stretched out enjoying the sun. I thought he was dead. I let my dog Beans come up to him when up he popped to check us out. I quickly pulled Beans away. The groundhog didn't move much. I guess he was still groggy from his winter sleep! We walked around the field. When we got back he was gone.
