A comfort

Man, using the "Beefish Bits," black beans, and taco seasoning that you sent, I celebrated Cinco de Mayo in Niger. I even put on some Buena Vista Social Club to add more Latin flavor. And right now I am enjoying some limeade, courtesy of a small, perfect lime I bought at the market, and a spoonful of sugar.
It's really a beautiful day today; the sky was so clear last night, no dusty shield between us and the stars. I have been tracking Orion's progress as he dips closer to the western horizon. It was a comfort to find familiar constellations here. And now that I see so much of the sky, maybe I'll learn some new ones.
