One of the hardships that I face living in Africa is being away from my family. March is especially hard because it’s the birthday month for both my niece and nephew. Every year, my sister and brother-in-law throw a large party with family and friends to celebrate both kids’ birthdays. (I know when they get older, though, the kids will probably want their own birthdays celebrated separately, but for now since they’re still young, everyone comes together for a big combined Happy Birthday extravaganza.) This year, I put together a little Happy Birthday video with the help of my Peace Corps The Gambia friends and some Gambian children. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday Megan and Cameron! Uncle Ryan misses you!
