Mamie Antoinette, our generous, warm, delighful host in Strasbourg. Her 20 year old niece Laurelle helped with the children. Mwanday and Candace, her granddaughters, are the little girls Maggie has tutored for over two years in San Ramon (I help with dinners and piano lessons!). It was wonderful to stay with them in Antoinette's 4 BR apartment in the heart of Strasbourg. Complete immersion in African culture including Maggie learning how to carry Estelle on her back.
