Weird Ass Plant

I found this thing in Cotonou and planted it at the Workstation. I was later told that to make it reproduce you have to cut it and plant it upsidedown. This is actually true. I'm not sure how these things make it in the wild.

Kota Waterfalls

These waterfalls are about 20 minutes from my house.

Home Leave

I'm flying to Dallas around November 1st and going back to Benin around the 30th. The dates may be slightly off since there are only three flights a week from Benin but that's as precise as I can get for now.


I start my welding apprenticeship tomorrow. Ever since I thought of the idea it's occurred to me that I could solve a lot of problems for cheap if only I had the ability to weld. My fear now is that once I get good at this I'm going to try to solve all my problems through welding regardless of its practicality. Also, I would just like to reiterate to my mother that, no, I will not blow myself up doing this.
