The woman in the gold bubu is from Guinea. She and her sister-in-law were dressed to the hilt--they were so beautiful with their hats and gold jewelry. The other woman (unfortunately not pictured) actually ran into her prom date from Guinea who had come with another friend. Both just happened to be in America, in Washington, D.C. visiting. Talk about a small world!Sheik returned to Guinea last night. We will miss him, his bright African shirts, and his kind, gentle ways. Alhamdulilah!
