Presidential Elections

I had the chance to stay up all night and watch the election coverage at a staff member’s house. It was about 5am when CNN announced Obama as the winner. Beninese people have been rooting for Obama because they believe he, as an African American, will give more support to Africa than previous Presidents. I’ve actually seen posters that say “Go Obama” in Cotonou and people have told me that I should vote for him.

    Hi Mrs. Guevin!
    How are you? I miss you a lot! Is it going to snow in Africa? Probably not, but you were there last winter, so maybe you could tell. How is teaching going? This winter, I am playing basketball! It is a lot of fun! I am all caught up at school!
    I miss you so, so, so, so, much!

    Love,
    Eliza

    Merry Christmas Mrs. Guevin!
    I can’t believe that it is almost Christmas! Only 4 more days!!!! Do you celebrate Christmas in Benin? I am soo excited! We have to go back to school on Minday, and the teachers have to work on Tuesday, but then we are off untill January 5, 2009. Can you believe that it is going to be 2009. 2008 has gone by so fast!
    I miss you so much!
    Merry Christmas!
