Two crossroaders have hooked up with local Gambians. The downside to this is that it's easier not to feel homesick when the people around you are missing their boyfriends, too. The good part is that the flirtation is amusing and has included bringing jewelry, supplying the group with free mangoes, offering to convert to Christianity, and offering to send his children to their mother’s so he could move to the US. Someone reminded me this morning that I've had my share of admiration. I don't think the drunk guy counts.
