We went to Kiri Dam for a short hike and picnic lunch for Father's Day. It was a beautiful drive through many villages.
We drove across the dam and parked our car at the base of the mountain (really a hill if you compare it to NH mountains.)

We had 8 graduate students come to Yola for a field study as part of the course I am teaching at AU. It was an amazing group of people and we had a great time together. The students had the opportunity to go out on site visits including the orphanage, several local schools, villages on public health issues, visited AIDS patients, and went on a safari.
Emma got some alone time with mommy and the group when she went with us to Yankari. She loved sitting in the front next to Dahiru and thoroughly enjoyed the hot springs!
We hiked to some caves on our safari and Emma's favorite animals were the baboons that were everywhere in the camp. One even got into our safari vehicle. She also liked the warthog babies.
|Some students enjoyed talking with the teachers at a local village school.|
During our farewell dinner we had great conversation with several inspiring community leaders.
I hope we can continue this collaboration...it was an amazing experience for all involved!
