SO… as a lot of our family and friends know, we have been stressed out working on a way to get our cats to PoG, pretty much since we got confirmation that we would be transferred.  (By we, I mean I have been stressed out…my husband is much more level headed about these kinds of things!)  After a crazy string of events and a little bit of chaos… they made it! Louie and Nola are officially living in Port-Gentil!

Image They were stuck in these crates for the entire 24 hours it took for us to get back… poor guys!  Overall, the gate agents and flight attendants were extremely helpful; one of the flight attendants even asked me what temperature I would like the animal’s cabin to be maintained at!

A couple of friends and family members have been asking what it looks like outside of our compound.  Here are a couple of pics from my walk with Jersey today.

With rainy season comes some beautiful blooms!

Keep in mind this is just the very close area around our compound.  As you work your way towards town center, there are more tall buildings, restaurants, and shops.  I hope to add more pictures of the town soon!
