Getting hitched

Bit of personal news here. I recently got engaged to Ms. Bintou Sagara. That goes towards explaining the light posting. That and the running a restaurant thing.

Will share some more details in the coming weeks. No wedding planned yet, but for the relatively exclusive group of folks that still read this semi-dormant site, you are all invited. Expect lots of Malian musicians, plenty of chapalo (a beer made from millet which the Dogon have mastered) and at least one camel.

I have a few other things I want to write about on the site, but one thing at a time.

MAZEL TOV! Needless to say, I’m very excited for you guys. I still read this site so I’m assuming that Ilan and I are invited. Unless absolutely impossible, I hope to celebrate with you both.

Congrats again Phil and Bintou. I’m coming for you for this wedding. Should I wear my tie as a bandana for this affair?
