After a 2 month long trip back to the United States to see family, friends, and celebrate the holidays, we are officially home and settling back into Port-Gentil life. While being back in the states was amazing and we have some wonderful memories from this trip, it feels nice to come back to a comfortable place that we consider home (Its still weird to think that “home” now is a place in West Africa!).
Before our holiday trip began, we got to celebrate Thanksgiving in PoG with a group of friends. Some of our guests had never been to a Thanksgiving dinner, and I had a hankerin for some real deal comfort food, so I wanted to make sure we did this dinner right! My friend and I set out around town on a mission to find all appropriate accoutrement for our Thanksgiving dinner and after searching through the various grocery stores PoG has to offer we even found a turkey!! Sadly, pumpkin was nowhere to be found. Here are a couple of pictures from our Turkey day.
It was so fun to celebrate and share such an important tradition with our Port-Gentil family.
