O Canada…

A pie that was gone by the end of the night.

A pie that was gone by the end of the night.

Part of traveling the world is that you are introduced to other cultures and traditions.  And of course, we meet African culture head on most every day, from the eating of various ethnic foods to the varying types of transportation and traffic rules (and guidelines).  But we also meet other cultures that accompany missionaries who serve with us.  Take for example the interpersonal skills course I did in Senegal in May.  There were 13 cultures represented from the missionary community.  Talk about a wide range of traditions in this group.

Here in Benin there is a large contingency of Canadians.  And luck would have it that I arrived during the time that Canadians celebrate their Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving in the U.S. is my favorite holiday and I think it might be in Africa, also.  We were able to get most of the same foods that we have been deprived of since we came: cranberry sauce, ham, rolls, pumpkin pie, and green beans.  By the end of the night I was full beyond measure and feeling a little Canadian.  O Canada…
