I realize yesterday was Christmas and right now I should be posting about our first Burundian Christmas, however it takes a few days for us to organize our thoughts and our photos. So for now, I will post about last weekend.
Last weekend, the team from Kibuye drove down to Bujumbura for Hope Africa University’s graduation. I would love to share stories from the day … however, I seem to have blacked out from heat exhaustion for most of the 7 hour ceremony. Here are some photos that I apparently took with my camera.
All the “professors” with a doctorate degree were asked to wear this outfit … please try not to be jealous.
At least I wasn't the only one who looked ridiculous.
There were over 600 students graduating, about 30 from the school of medicine, pictured here.
