In Senegal I am named after my host mother's mother, Adama Diallo. In Pulaar the word for someone with the same name is "tokora," so she is tokora an, my name-twin. She doesn't live in Darou, but this past week she came to visit, and my host aunt took a photo of the two of us together.
Adama Diallo I and most of Adama Diallo IIIt turns out that it's easier to make myself shorter than it is to explain zooming, so this is the best photo we got:
Bineta, Adama Diallo, and Adama Diallo
Houssey and Adama (aka me)
And this is little Aminata, "studying" under the mango tree in the side yard where we have language and culture class most afternoons. She is adorable.
