Lava Columns

21 02 2011

When we have the opportunity, we enjoy getting out of the city and exploring different areas here. On Saturday (19 Feb) we headed out with a group of friends to explore an area known for columns of lava (basalt). A caravan of baturi (white people) passing through villages draws a lot of friendly attention, and as soon as we parked and began walking down to the riverbed, we drew a crowd of children who walked along with us the entire time. Some of the older ones spoke English, and several in our group speak Hausa, so they talked with us, sang songs for us, enjoyed being part of pictures, and before long were holding hands with the women and girls in our group.
